I am not sure if I am posting the wrong place, if I am wrong to ask this hear or not....

I am not trying to offend, bother, or impose myself upon anyone...BUT I am here to PLEAD that if there is anyone out here that has a husband, boyfriend, father, brother, or any loved one in CFRC-East...who has contact with a person there (whether by call or by letter) to PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE give a simple message:

His name is Alex...sometimes known as Cuba...

I had to move and recently got a landline, he has no way to contact me and he has not recieved my letters in almost 4 weeks.

The message is, "His dad has recieved his letters, his girl Linda has written him 5 letters, and she misses him and loves him very much"

Anyone with a heart who has ever been through a similar situation, please try to understand my desperation. I will be eternally greatful with any help you can offer. If you can even maybe send me a private post so I can have him get my landline number through you, I would really, really, really appreciate it. Name a cost if necessary, but I need him to know I am here.

Thank you eternally for any help and God Bless!

I was just wondering if you are permanent at the reception center what does it mean exactly? why werent they transfered to another facility?( not complaining ! llol) does it mean theyll get out earlier? or its just like any other facility? :confused:

I did a permanent stretch at CFRC. (8-9 months) It is just like being in any other facility time wise. NO early release or anything like that. Regardless of what anyone else tries to tell you. However, once the officers get to know you it does have a lot of advantages. Those officers there tend to take care of you a lot if you are a perm. They will escort you right to the front of the canteen line, let you get your hustle on and all types of stuff. I did six years and I swear...I would have loved to do it ALL at CFRC after I had established my work ethic and all of that stuff with the officers.

CFRC-EAST is a dorm setting. no cells like the main unit and there are less inmates.

Had my first visit today!! it was great! I havent touched him in 5 months so to actually gaze into his eyes and caress his skin was priceless=]. Getting in to visit him was no problem at all and actually the co's were nice( but I could tell its just a front lol). I waited 15 mins for him, but it was so worth it because seeing his surprised face was to funny lol. I dont wanna keep on talking because I could go on for days but in summary, we talked for almost 6 hours! we hugged, got some good kisses in, and I even rubbed his inner and outer thigh with my shoe when the co's werent looking;] lol! it was great and made my entire week!! Im going back next Saturday to visit my boo again and I cant wait. So blessed that he is only 15 mins away from me( hes at CFRC- East). I hope this brought hope and smile to all of your faces!! keep your head up and you will get through this!:D:)

My boyfriend is currently in cfrc-e he was transfered there last week. I'm hoping he stays there I live in ft pierce and scarred he will get sent further instead of closer. I'm extreamly nervious about him being gone. Our relationship is perfect, but I'm scarred anyways. Is that normal? We've been together for 4.5 years and have a rocky past. But I love him and we decieded to start a family of our own when he gets done with his 2 years.. (jan 2013) I'm going on and on... Anyways does anyone know the circumstances for the inmates?how long mail takes to get to them? Is there a way to get visitation apps with out having to wait for hom to send them? Lol anything any info at all...

Where do you park to visit at CFRC-E? Google maps doesn't let you go see past the train tracks.

After the train tracks, you follow the road down and it leads to a stop sign. To the right is the east unit, and straight ahead is the main unit. There are signs to help guide you. :D

My boyfriends facility changed on the DC site from CFRC main to CFRC East, does that mean that this will be his permanent facility for a while? They haven't posted his custody level yet though how long does that usually take? He's been at reception for 3 weeks and 2 days.

06-27-2013, 04:56 PM
His permanent facility cannot be determined until they set his custody level. He's been moved to East most likely because they are done with him at Main, with all of the evaluations and such that he has to go through, and they are making space to bring in more people. East is mostly a transit unit. Basically, they sent him to the bus stop to wait till they decide where to send him.
