07-04-2006, 09:26 AM
Hi ladies! My husband is there, has been for a few weeks now. I haven't taken my son to see him yet, can't afford to. How is visitation there? Do they limit the number of kids?

07-05-2006, 02:10 PM
Hello Sailormoon the visitation there really is pretty good but it really depends on the Co's there some really take there job to there head. And there is no limit on kids as long as you can keep control of them cause they will tell you to keep your kids with you. Take care

07-05-2006, 03:54 PM
Welcome Sailormoon Glad You Found Us .yes That Is What I Was Told As Long As You Can Handle Them You Can Bring Them However The Space For Non Contact Is Limited.i Usually Take Three And We Have Contact But The Weekend Of The 15th And 16th We Will Be 2 Adults And 4 Children.and They Will Have 2 Day Four Hour May Be Smarter To Split Them Up I May Need To Rethink This Myself. Called The Hospitality House And They Were So Nice.i Forgot To Ask How Late Is The Latest You Can Arrive At The House Does Anyone Know?hope All You Ladies Had A Nice Fourth Of July My Week Has Been Real Crazy But Im Still Sane!! Talk To You Ladies Soon And If Any Of You Go Down To The Unit The Weekend We Are Going Maybe We Can Meet Have A Great Week.sincereley Anna "patsy"

07-24-2006, 06:03 PM
Just wanted to say that last week my visit went well at the ware unit and my stay at the samaritan house was really great.the women there are wonderful and very helpful.the devotional they have on saturday nights is great and I also met mama sue who came in on sunday to the ware unit to meet my son.God Bless her and her husband who give the sunday service at the units.Also wanted to add that colorado city is small and for those who stay at the samaritan house or overnight they do have a public pool where you can take your children or if they are old enough they can be droped off so you can get a nap in or a little rest because kids do get restless.thank all of you ladies who I met and my prayers are for all of our loved ones to come home safe and when the time is right.have a great week and may the lord give each of you peace in your life and love in your hearts to support your loved one till they return home where they belong.sincereley,Anna "Patsy"

09-06-2006, 10:52 AM
Hello AnnaP and everyone,, sorry I have been away for so long been dealing with many issues. They finally moved Dale (as I just found out yesterday) so he is no longer at the Ware Unit. I found out this morning that he is at the Byrd Unit in Huntsvillle. Does anyone know anything about that place? At least now is baby sister is only 20-30 minutes from him and can go and visit whenever. I told her this morning and she cried, she is so happy to know that he is so close to her. Of course Im still hours away from him but Im glad she is near. hope all is going well with everyone and for your guys too. AnnaP we will deffinatly keep in touch. Thankyou for being such a wonderful friend to me and always being there for me.

09-06-2006, 04:59 PM
Dale has left the building that is what nick let us know yesterday in his letter . glad to hear he is just one step closer to freedom thank GOD FOR THAT!!! his life has forever been changed in many ways while being within the walls I will keep him in my prayers and you to Amy God bless both of you.Looking forward to seeing my son this weekend.Thank you ladies for all the support I have found alot of great friends and support here.anna"patsy"

09-06-2006, 05:22 PM
From What I Gather Byrd Unit Isn't To Bad That Is Where My Fiance Is At. Only Thing He Was Complaining About Was The Food He Said It Sucks Which Doesn't Surprise Me. It Is Pretty Mcuh A Processing Unit, He Has Been Going Thru Alot Of Medical Testing And Stuff

09-06-2006, 06:19 PM
Thankyou so much ,,for everything Anna, you have been such a blessing and a friend to me. Did you get my email?? I called Huntsville today and he is still in transit I guess is what she called it so obviously the Byrd Unit is not going to be his last stop. But I hope and pray he is one step closer to being home with his family. After such a difficult time lately they need him just as much as he needs them. And with all the things I have heard about Huntsville,, well you know me,, Mrs. Worry Im so glad you get to see Nick this weekend that is awesome. I am going to miss our rides together,,, hug the little ones for me and Cade and tell them hello for us. Hope to see you soon.

09-17-2006, 02:37 AM

10-13-2006, 10:51 AM
Hello my Dick Ware Fam I hate to say it but muy hubby is gone he was transfered on Wed and now he is at Byrd:( no visits till he is assingned an unit. I have never missed a visit and I am so sad I know he is sad too. But this is a good thing he will be at a unit soon and I am praying home soon. I will continue to keep yall posted Lots of love and Godbless :) I pray your car gets fixed soon Amanda.

10-17-2006, 12:25 AM
Ohh sorry you are sad Sonya..... I know the moves can be stressfull. Especially when you don't get to have contact. I pray for you guys too that he will be home soon. It was great to get aquinted with you and I will be seeing you on PTO. thanks for the prayer on my car getting fixed. The worst thing about the whole ordeal was that it broke down about 8 miles from the unit and I had not choice but to have it towed back to my town which was like 75 miles away. That's why I didnt get my visit. I thought about walking but it would have been an awful walk LOL But I got my visit this week. Thank God I have his cars. God Bless you and your family take care.:love:

I have been going to the ware unit on a regular basis and have had some great visits with no problems other than the vending machines.I heard that the visitation is so high the weekend before and after valentines day that they will not be giving special visits.Im not positive this was something I heard.Make your reservations for the samaritan house early because they did tell mke that they expect alot of visitors to reserve rooms those weekends.Have a great week !!!Anna

02-07-2007, 11:06 PM
Hello everyone, Anna.... I am getting aspecial visit this weekend and I have reserved my room already. God Bless everyone and I hope those that are visiting will have a safe trip and maybe I will see you guys there.

We Will Be Ready To Fight And Put That Enemy Where He Belongs UNDER OUR FEET!!!!!!! CONTINUE TO BE THE LIGHT TO YOUR LOVED ONE THROUGH GOOD AND BAD TIMES EVEN WHEN YOU FEEL HE IS BING SELFISH SHOW YOUR LIGHT BECAUSE EVEN THOUGH HE GOT HIM SELF THERE HIS HELPLESSNESS WILL AND CAN CONSUME HIM TILL THERE IS NOTHING LEFT ENCOURAGE ENCOURAGE ENCOURAGE MY SISTERS I PRAY THIS TOUCHED AT LEAST ONE GODBLESS AND TAKE CARE :) :) :) :)

06-15-2007, 12:24 PM
welcome platinumk glad you found us.I wrote a big message then it got erased about a week ago so its been a while since i have written i've been so busy like all the rest of you Im sure.Hi amanda it was nice seeing you this past weekend never know when im gonna run into one of you either at the samaritan house or the unit.i just wanted to say that my son finally got his job back in the kitchen and we are so glad cause this october makes 2 years in the transfer facility if he even stays at ware that long you know we never know ladies but i know he will be transfered to a regular unit in the next few months.I was so glad that they decided to give him back his job so quick it means alot to us cause most of you know I got 5 boys and commisary gets expensive sometimes and him working in the kitchen helps with that bill for me anyway.sonya glad to hear all the positive things going on for you during these crazy times.You are bleassed how is your husband doing? Im sure like the rest of us having good and bad days.we are waiting on an answer for clairssa's husband it should come real soon i will let you know.please keep her and family in your prayers.i sure hope they transfer my son to the wallace unit next door cause I am so use to making the trips down to colorado city and staying with the wonderful ladies at the samaritan house they are such a blessing to my family and I know that some even minister to my son at awre unit.One lady at the samaritan house this weekend saw a picture of my son on my little ones t-shirt and said I know your brother I minister to him on tuesdays when he is such a good feeling to know that they know the love we as a family have for the lord.And I can never thank then enough to serve the lord the way they do. To minister to our loved ones because they really do a great job at it under the circumstances that arise at times.So I make it a point to tell them it does make a difference if only one spirit is lifted and one person changes it is all worth it.Thank you ladies also for being there for us we appreciate the understanding and sharing of each others experiences and the help you have extended to my family.GOD BLESS ALL OF YOU.Stand by your man and let the lord do his work. trust in him and it will all workout!!im here for any of you who just need someone to talk to or just vent pm me if you need to you ladies soon have a great weekend and for those traveling for the fathers day visit have a great visit and a safe trip.Anna

07-05-2007, 06:17 PM

08-04-2007, 07:46 PM
My son has left ware unit after 1 year and 8 months he did 2 months at middleton before that so he did total 1 year and 10 months at a transfer facility.He was moved on thursday and was taken to huntsville to a diagnostic facility byrd unit to then be transfered to the ID unit where he will serve out the rest of his time was what huntsville told me on friday.they stay at the diagnostic unit from 30 to 45 days is what I was told but when I asked the lady she was very kind and said call in about 14 days because they could do it by then.I looked him up on the inmate search and was really surprised to see they had already listed as being moved to byrd that was within 24 hours when I checked dont know when they posted it I just thought it was visitors during the diagnostics stay there although he can recieve mail.I have learned in these two years to be very grateful for even the little things and with all of you to help support me through this time in my life it has been a true blessing to me just to know that when no one understands all of you do.Thank all of you soooo much for all of your support and I will be checking in time to time.God Bless all of you.Anna

08-07-2007, 04:58 PM
Now From Byrd Unit He Went To Goree Unit Also In Huntsville To Continue Diagnostics Then Moved Again Thats 2 Moves In 5 Days And Counting.and The Inmate Search Is Right On Time Thats Just A Blessing And Everyone I Have Spoken To Have Been Very Kind And Given Me Information.we Are As Soon As Nick Does The Texas Tour I Can Go See Him No Matter Where My Son Is I Will Go So Im Just Waiting On Where.thanks Everyone For Your Support Anna

Hi, I have a few friends that are in the Ware Unit. It seems to be OK there, one friend has already made trustee status which is good because he can have contact visits with me and my daughter now. The visits there are pretty good, they have a microwaves and a bigger variety of food to buy than some of the other units I have been to lately.

09-19-2007, 07:06 PM
Ware Unit Is On Lockdown And Having Shakedowns.i Called The Unit On Monday And Today They Said They Are Still On Lockdown Doing Shakedowns So Anyone Planning On Visiting This Weekend Call First To Make Sure It Is Over By The Weekend.still In Touch Anna

10-05-2007, 02:55 PM
Hi all. My name is Misty and my fiance was just denied parole (his first). Then a few days after his denial they transferred him from Middleton, where he has been since May when he caught chain from Dallas County. He is now in the Ware unit and I am going to see him Sunday morning. We are driving down tomorrow afternoon and planning to stay at Samaritan. The hospitality house by Middleton was wonderful so I am hoping it goes smooth tomorrow as well. I guess I just wanted to say hi to everyone and ask if maybe you can keep us in your prayers. Our daughter is devastated at the results of his parole, as we all were. My fiance, Les, does not even yet know; but I will have to tell him tomorrow. He is not eligible for another review until September of next year. We were counting on him being home and now we are guaranteed at least another year without him. He seems to like the Ware unit better though. In fact, he works in the kitchen there already (he was a porter at Middleton) and also he has run into several inmates he met at the old unit. Anyway, any info any of you have on this unit that you would like to share would be much apprecisted! God bless you all!


10-24-2007, 05:03 AM
Well, hello all. I finally got to se my husband at the new place, Ware. He is so happy there in comparison to Middleton. He says it is much better and that they are all treated so much better. I could see in his eyes the light that had faded over the last couple of months in Middleton. We had a wonderful visit on Sunday and I cannot wait to go back and see him again very soon. It was really nice to be able to have such an enjoyable visit. Everyone was so pleasant. The guards were terrific! They even let us have some very nice kisses and not just those darn They also let us do more than just hold hands. We were able to hold arms and just be a lot closer and more personal. It was a wonderful change from the militant type attitude we sometime received at Middleton. Anyways, just wanted to let you all know how great it went and how good it was at the Ware unit!!!! God bless you all guys!

12-07-2007, 10:41 PM
Awww my husband just got transfered to the Wallace unit and i kinda miss the ware unit. It's really nice when everybody knows you. Plus it's a smaller unit. But we are blessed that he didnt get sent across TX. Praise the Lord. I hope everyone is doing great and enjoying the holidays. God Bless all of you and have a Blessed Christmas.

12-26-2007, 10:24 PM
hi everyone i am new to the site. My husband is in Ware unit. He was in middleton for 1 month then they moved him to ware. I haven't been there to see him yet because they told me I had to wait 90 days. My husband have been gone for 13 months. Can someone explain to me how the parole review works. My husband was eligible for parole review in may, he was still in county jail and had never been to court. He was sentenced in august. Can someone tell me about how long it will take for his parole review? He was sentenced to four yrs but was told he had to do 25 percent of his time before he is eligible. He has been in jail longer than 25 percent. Thanks advice is greatly appreciated. Oh one more thing what is the difference between a regular unit and a transfer unit?

12-26-2007, 10:45 PM
They can only stay at a transfer unit up to 2 years. The regular units they will probably be there awhile. My husband was at 2 transfer units for about 1 1/2 years and then sent to Wallace and has been there since. We are just waiting for him to come home 1/4/08! He never got moved or anything, has been there the whole time. Wallace is a good unit, I think. No problems.

12-27-2007, 03:25 PM

The ware unit is really easy to get to. It's exit 215 off Interstate 20.

10-18-2008, 12:17 PM
My boyfriend just got moved from the Middleton unit to Dick Ware a few days ago. I got a card from him giving me the address, but he didn't say anything about how it was like there. In 6 months we get contact visits, but I'm not sure if I'll be able to go. I've read online about it and in almost everything I've read it says you have to be 18 or have your legal guardian. 2 problems : I'm 17, and his grandmother would be the one making the drive with me, not my legal guardian. Any advise?

01-09-2009, 04:03 PM
my husband is in dickware unit. he just got there, trasnsfrd from middleton. he got three yrs. does anyone else have a loved one there? i wan't to get information about the unit, like visits, etc ,a and where it is. anyone????

I have a brother in the Dick Ware Unit. He hasnt been there long. Was taken there before Xmas. I dont know much about it either but I pray they are safe and blessed in there. I believe in our restitution system however I believe in humanity as well. I ask that you add my brother Adam Molinar to your prayers and I will add your son in mine. I can only imagine how hard it must be for you as a mother to have to deal with this. My mother has her battles with it daily. My mother is sick with an aortic aneurysm and hr health isnt able totake punches life gives you when a loved one is serving time. We miss and love Adam.

04-13-2010, 06:24 PM
I'm going to Ware Unit in Colorado City to visit my husband ,this saturday may 17th. if someone wants to go please PM.

07-18-2010, 02:20 PM
Hello and blessings to everyone! I was just told yesterday that my brother is in the Dick Ware Unit. I haven't read the entire string, (I just found this site, so I will!) but i'm thankful to anyone who can share some much needed info. about rules, letters, anything! My brother and I are five years apart, but I raised him after our mom died 10 years ago and unfortunately he made mistakes...SO as the hard "mom figure" and the sibling it's hard to find the right balance of supportive things I can do from here. I live in California and have much resistance from my family in TX who wants to control my communication! As IF these men don't have enough to deal please any info is appreciated. My 7 year old son and my brother are extremely CLOSE and its been 3 years that they have been apart and my little son J wants to write him, it kills me that we didn't know how to contact Anthony (my brother) until yesterday. Can we send pictures?

07-19-2010, 04:47 PM
You can send pictures and letters.
You can also use J-Pay and send e-mails to him there.
Go to J-pay. com and it will walk you through it.
If I send an e-mail before noon, my hubby usually gets it the same day. Only costs a stamp per page.
Sorry you are having resistance from your Texas family but they can't stop you from sending him letters.
My husband says letters are like Chritmas so I write him everyday.
Hope this helps.

i have a son in Ware Unit in dorm "H" and he is needing me to visit him, I live in Florida, so its going to take a miracle from GOD Almighty to get me there. Another obstacle, that I haven't had the nerve to break to my son is the cancer is supposedly back.
Please pray for me to be able to see him. I love him with all my heart and soul.

I have sent you a PM with info on visitation. You are in my prayers.
Do you get to talk to him on the phone?

07-29-2010, 01:34 PM
I have a boyfriend at ware. I haven't been able to visit him yet. Hoping that i will make it soon! I don't know much about this unit but I am learning! :)

11-22-2010, 01:20 PM
Hello Friday I just found out my husband was moved to Ware Unit. He was in Middleton for a month and I haven't been able to go visit him yet because when he was in middleton they said he can't have visits in there until he was there for 30 days and then they just moved him. i miss him so much. It is super hard because we have been married only 3 months. I just want to go visit him so bad.

03-19-2011, 11:16 AM
My hubby just got transferred to Ware from Middleton two weeks ago. Doesn't like it much. First day in there some guy tried to start a fight with him and my hubby refused because he didn't want to catch a case, causing us to have any visitation interruptions. The guard started screaming and cussing at my hubby and called him a liar. WTF is up with the guards? I have already called the Warden and Ombudsman. I am not letting some guard with the geneology of the banjo boy from "Deliverence" mess up our visitation just because he has a little ounce of power and makes "fry cook" wages. Sorry for sounding bitter but this is so frustrating to deal with. Who monitor's the guards behavior? If it's the Warden, then they need a new one!

03-24-2011, 06:27 PM
Hello annap my husband is at the ware unit he has been there almost 2 years. If you need any info I am here. I travel every weekend with God's help. Godbless
