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

They were there when we needed them. To the Corrections Foundation, my family and I say, “THANK YOU.”

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

I cannot say thank you enough. This will help tremendously. If there is ever anything that I can do to help promote the foundation, please let me know. Again, I and my family thank you.

Central Office Employee

Thank you so very much for the contribution made by the members of the Corrections Foundation and each individual that thought enough to whisper a prayer, send a card, donate leave, call, and visit during a very difficult time. The very idea of people caring gave me a little more strength each day. “Thank You” […]

As the Director of the Pawsitive Direction program at Okeechobee CI, I can say with sincere gratitude that the Corrections Foundation has been incredibly helpful. Not only has the help come in the form of supplies when needed, but support and guidance, as well.

I have been a member for years and have never needed the assistance. (Thank God) However, 2 weeks ago my daughter who also works for the department and is a member had her baby 10 weeks early. She lives over 60 miles from the hospital and makes the trip everyday to see her baby. She will be out of work for a little while and received a check from the foundation for $1500. She is extremely grateful for this much needed blessing! As her mom, I just want to say Thank You for the assistance you provided to my baby girl! I’ve always been an avid supporter of the foundation but now that it’s blessed my family personally, I’m an even bigger advocate! Thank you doesn’t even begin to express the gratitude in my heart right now!

The Pups N PALS PROGRAM in Daytona Beach is fantastic. Save pups and rehabilates people. Thank you to this foundation for allowing a program like this happen and having it grow to be a recognized program in the community. The Veterans and the regular ADOPTERS have all been extremely grateful. The Office Irwin really does a great job.
