(This information came to me from
Prisoners of Davis)
A Florida based
Christian web site dedicated to connecting inmates and their families with the
community. We believe that the inmates "punishment" is his or her sentence
and that the Dept. of Corrections is not charged with inflicting dehumanizing
abuse on the offender. We offer prison families connections to spiritual
and support systems, judicial and legal reviews, advocacy and reform sites, and
updates on department of corrections and legislative information.

RECOGNITION FOR A PROFESSIONAL EMPLOYEE
Ms. Marti Thomas
My nomination is for MS. MARTI THOMAS, who works in the FDOC Family Ombudsman office. I applied for visitation and never heard back. I called that office and Marti was working. She listened to my request, asked pertinent and relevant questions, spoke clearly and precisely, and even read the computer
information over the phone. She was compassionate, literate, friendly, helpful and didn't mind waiting as I laboriously wrote down all her information. I
explained I am handicapped and used a speakerphone in order to speak and write at the same time. She even took extra time to repeat answers, so that I fully
understood her replies.
MARTI THOMAS (full name Martha) will forever have my undying thanks, for her attitude, deportment and professionalism, in a job in which not enough
appreciation is tendered.

I am including this site, because some some people question whether whether prisoners have civil liberties, but we
know the families still do!
