Attorney Visits:

Requests for general in-person legal visits between attorneys and Incarcerated Individuals must be made to the facility where the Incarcerated Individuals is housed. Attorney/Incarcerated Individuals visit requests are being scheduled and will continue as long as it is safe to do so on a facility-by-facility basis. Based on the conditions of each facility, they are subject to being postponed or rescheduled. A reliable alternative to an in-person attorney/Incarcerated Individuals visit is to schedule a confidential phone call.

All calls are to be 'collect calls' unless the Incarcerated Individuals utilizes prepaid minutes.

Volunteer Opportunities

    Volunteers are an essential part to the function of the facility as it allows us to offer a plethora of activities and/or religious service opportunities to our population. NCCF is currently looking for volunteers to:

  • Facilitate programming in our Purposeful Living Units Served (PLUS). The PLUS program is a faith and character-based community that encourages offenders to choose alternatives to criminal thinking and behavior by providing a focus on spiritual and character development, life-skills training community service, and intentional preparation for living as law-abiding citizens.
  • Lead groups for Hebrew Israelites, Asatru, Wiccan, and MST of A
  • Lead groups for minimum security Incarcerated Individuals
