At Ameelio, we believe in long-established research—increased contact between inmates and loved ones significantly reduces recidivism and improves lives. We are therefore committed to transforming the justice system by providing the first-ever free prison communication platform. By building a free video visitation and e-messaging platform, we can fundamentally improve the lives of everyone touched by incarceration. We aim to disrupt the monopolies that dominate the prison telecommunications industry by introducing a free and high quality alternative.
