Ameelio is an organization that utilizes the power of technology to facilitate strong, consistent support networks for incarcerated individuals. They use evidence-based methods to improve access to friends, peers and support groups during incarceration through specially designed applications for mobile devices. These apps are free to users and make it easy for incarcerated individuals to stay in contact with loved ones. The technology also includes educational elements which support incarcerated individuals and shift the focus from punishment to rehabilitation. Ameelio believes that continued access to a loving and supportive network during incarceration is one of the best ways to prevent recidivism and promote safe, permanent reintegration into the community after exiting the system. The application supports both video calls and letters to incarcerated individuals. Facilities must be approved by the state and enter into a contract with Ameelio before incarcerated individuals are able to use the service on their own.
