What Florida Department of Corrections officers, staff, and contractors say about the Corrections Foundation.

For over 10 weeks, I was out of work, dealing with some of the worst pain in my life. Being out that long put my family in financial straits. One day my boss dropped by and gave me a very generous check from the Foundation.  I realized that I was a member of a FAMILY!

Words cannot express our heartfelt appreciation for the assistance we recently received from Warden Coker and the Corrections Foundation for unexpected financial difficulties endured. We encourage any DOC employee who is not yet a member to join the Corrections Foundation.

Probation Officer

 Let me say that I can not thank you enough for the help. I was at my wits end trying to figure out how I was going to be able to pay the co-payment for the surgery and still be able to cover everything else. The Foundation has been a God send for me and […]

Corrections Officer
