Post Coleman or Pensacola help

So im trying to find out some info for my boyfriend that will be headed to either COLEMAN LOW or FPC PENSACOLA. Are they aloud to wear there own clothes or can they order from commissary? Can you bring in food for visitations? Where can I find out what types of jobs are offered to the inmates? Do they have any family bonding programs for long term inmates? Any info would be greatly appreciated this is my first time having a LO in prison.

Thank you,
Jamie

No personal clothes are allowed, but some things can be purchased from the commissary (athletic shoes, clothes, etc). Here is the Coleman Low web page, that has links to the inmate rules (A&O Handbook) visitors rules and commissary list. All bop owned prisons have very similar commissary availability.

and here is the one for Pensacola

The rules and prison experience in minimum security camps are very different from those in any FCI low security prison. He will be able to learn about the available jobs, and programs once he arrives at his designated prison since they are often site-specific. Grass always needs cutting, floors need mopping, and there are always lots of jobs available in the kitchen.
