Default Will have a family member in Ashland FCI soon.

Hey Tia.
I was looking for some information about the Ashland facility and found this site. Your message interested me because I will be taking my husband to the FCI to serve 10 months. I know that is nothing compared to the time you will be waiting for your loved one to come home. I would love to hear from you. Maybe we could help each other get through this. We have been married for 19 years and I am not looking forward to the day he goes. Send back soon and I wish you well.

Default My husband's at Ashland too

Hey, welcome to Ashland! I met Tia there a couple of months ago. I'm in Indianapolis and my husband's been there since Aug. He's in for 20 more months. It's been OK for him. How about yours? How often do you go there? What unit is he in? Mine's in Unit R.

Default Ashland fci

Is your man still in Ashland FCI? Mine is and getting ready to come home soon. Would you happen to have any information about possibly getting picked up from the bus stop (he has to go on to a halfway house)?

My husband has just been sent to Ashland. Been there for over 6 weeks, still doesn't have his property and says they stuck him in a cow barn. He says it's by far the worst place he's been yet, even worse than the transfer center in Atlanta... Anyone else have any info on Ashland?? I'm worried sick about this place.

My husband was setanced to 15 months at FCI Ashland, He has been in for 3 months now, I live just north of Indianapolis, Indiana. It is a 4 1/2 hour trip made once a week. My husband has complained about the roaches in the dining hall, and there are ants marching all over the visiting room when i go see him, but he really doesn't complain that much about it. He says there are far worse places they could have sent him. He has said that the lack of air conditioning can get rough when it gets hot out. He also complains about the guards smoking in front of the inmates since they can't smoke, but he pretty much keeps to himself waiting on the day they let him walk out of that place, only 9 more months to go!!!!

To answer your question, I think its a good place from what I know. My dad is a Food Service Supervisor and sees probably 1/2 the inmates. He says most of them are real nice. Funny, too. Maybe my dad sees your boyfriend? If you have any questions I can ask my dad about it... The # to FCI Ashland is 606-928-6414.

I don't know of any hotels at the airport. As far as car rentals, I can tell you the one that I have gotten the best rate from and that is Enterprise.

As far as hotels/motels near the prison, I believe it was a Sheraton or Best Western we stayed at and it was not expensive. It was near the prison. In fact, the road the prison is on dead ends onto another road that goes directly to downtown Ashland and it was on that road on the East side of the street. There are lots of hotels/motels to choose from. I just do not remember the name as it has been a few years.

Good luck to you and enjoy your visit.

Default care packages?

My bf just arrived at Ashland(KY). I remember reading something about care packages. Do I have to wait until he has been there awile before I can send omething? Can I send something periodically or is this a one shot deal? ow do I know what ia acceptable and is there a weight limit? Can Isend something and then can his mom send something later? Is there anything on -line that I can refer to? If not-how do I find out what is allowed? I would appreciate any feedback..

Your post is already a week old so maybe you've figured this out already. But if you mean the Ahsland House, their phone and fax numbers are on the Kentucky DOC page related to halway houses. I would contact them and ask if your bf hasn't given you info yet. I didn't look through the whole site to get the mail regs., but maybe they're on there.

Ashland is a Federal Prison. They do not go by the same rules as the state facilities. I will move this to the Federal Forum so you will find the answers you need.

Good luck to you.

You aren't able to send care packages in Federal Prisons (unless there's a special circumstance - medical reason - only approved through the warden). Google "BOP" to get the web address to the FEDERAL BUREAU OF PRISONS, to find the answers to your questions.

The site will tell you about visitations, phone calls, where & how to send money, write letters (addresses), etc.

I hope this information helps! Good Luck!

Ashland is a Federal facility. You will find it in the Federal Forum. If you are not finding the information you need, then please start up a new thread and ask. It could be at the present time there are not many members who have loved ones there.

Good luck to you and yours.
