FLIP is a Christian non-profit organization dedicated to maintaining strong family relationships in Florida's prison families. The purpose of our organization is to help reestablish and repair broken family ties brought on by incarceration. Many prison families express their desire to re-establish and repair broken family ties. They are frustrated and disheartened because family connections seem to be discouraged rather than encouraged by Dept. Of Corrections policies and current legislation.
FLIP represents the forgotten victims:
families and friends who face the difficult issues caused
by the incarceration of a loved one in Florida: the people
who are our "invisible prisoners".
FLIP is strongly dedicated to encouraging family ties as
a deterrent to the recidivism of offenders by addressing
issues such as the destruction of the family unit,
single-parenting and childcare, legal issues, and visitation
FLIP advocates for the humane treatment of families and
friends visiting Florida Correctional Institution's and
presents a voice for those who feel they must remain

TOGETHER, WE ARE BEING HEARD!
Remember the prisoners as if chained with them-those who
are suffering - as if you yourself were suffering also. ---
