If you have an incarcerated loved one in Iowa, Colorado, Illinois or Maine, you can finally schedule in-person visits and face-to-face video calls in one place. With Ameelio Connect, become verified, schedule a visit or video call, receive a voice call, send messages, and connect with your loved one from anywhere — for free!

How it works
- Locate your loved one in seconds using our facility directory
- Securely upload your ID to become verified*
- Schedule free video calls and visits every week
- Keep track of your upcoming events
- Check your audio and video connection
- Send live chat messages during calls
- Connect face-to-face with your loved one in real time
- Receive free voice calls

Is it really free?
Yep! Ameelio believes that staying connected with your loved ones and paying for basic needs shouldn't be a tradeoff. You'll never have to pay for a video or voice call with us.

So, what is Ameelio anyway?
Ameelio is a nonprofit, and our mission is to build free-to-use communications technology to create a more humane and rehabilitative corrections system. You may recognize the name from our free mailing app 'Ameelio Mail: Photos to Prison', but we're only getting started.

When will Ameelio Connect be available in my facility?
If your loved one isn't incarcerated at facilities offering our service in Iowa, Colorado, Illinois, or Maine, don't worry too much. Ameelio is working hard with policymakers and DOCs across the country to make free video and voice calling a reality for everyone!

*In order to use the service, you must first receive authorization from the facility as an approved visitor.

First time user, worked great!

This is a great app to connect with our loved one when the distance to travel is too far. Grateful for the opportunity to video chat.

Rating video visit

I feel that the visit has clear hearing and great sound. The only thing is when we are talking the call freezes up and then I don’t get to hear what he’s saying and it’s important to hear what he has to say. I’m really thankful for the free service that Ameelio Connect has to offer or I wouldn’t be able to visit with my good close friend. Happy New Year .
