Our Mission

At Edovo, our mission is to help everyone connected to incarceration build better lives.

The Problem

It's called corrections, but constraints on facilities and their populations mean there isn't genuine opportunity for meaningful rehabilitation. Today, many of the 2.2 million people who are incarcerated spend much of their time on daytime television.

Limited Access to Education

Tight budgets and limited resources prevent jails and prisons from delivering meaningful programming or rehabilitative content. Education decreases recidivism by 43%, but 4 out of 5 people in custody don't have regular access.

Costly Communication

High rates, unnecessary fees, and poor customer service have become all too common in corrections, thanks to limited competition and profit driven vendors. These problems are felt by agencies, the incarcerated, and their loved ones.

Higher Violence and Recidivism

Substantive education and consistent communication are key in helping individuals prepare for re-entry. A lack of affordable access and engagement can lead to higher rates of violence and recidivism for incarcerated populations.

How can the average facility provide meaningful rehabilitative programming and affordable communication to this population among all of these constraints?

The Solution

Edovo utilizes secure tablet technology to deliver free access to educational programming and low cost communication services. Edovo operates as an all-in-one communication and education consultancy, providing key services and creating custom solutions for jails and prisons nationwide. Edovo's platform makes staying in touch with loved ones more affordable, improves safety within correctional environments, and increases opportunities for rehabilitation.

How It Works

 

 

Launch

We provide all hardware, connectivity, and software to get you up and running. Edovo offers a variety of devices including traditional telephones, kiosks, and secure tablets.

Start

Learners can check out any tablet to create an account or pick up where they left off. Edovo tablets also support a range of available communication options.

Engage

Self-directed, goal-driven learning pathways allow everyone to go at their own pace. Affordable communication helps incarcerated individuals stay in touch with their support systems.

Succeed

Certificates and rewards drive progress to show to staff, courts, and future employers. Goals and courses help individuals successfully prepare for re-entry.

The Edovo Difference


What makes Edovo unlike other service providers? We see corrections differently. As a social impact organization, we are committed to always placing the people we serve above profit. We believe education and communication are powerful tools to help reduce recidivism, and we only partner with correctional agencies who share this belief. Our products and services are specifically designed to address some of the key problems facing correctional staff, incarcerated individuals, and affected families and communities. 

Edovo is a fresh alternative to an industry plagued by limited options, exploitation and poor vendor practices. We envision a better future for corrections that includes:

 

icon_fair_honest_pricing

Fair and Honest Pricing

Increased healthy communication improves the likelihood of re-entry success and reduced taxpayer burden on the public. That's why we strive to lower rates and eliminate fees in every facility we partner with. We also advocate for increased vendor transparency and independent financial review.

icon_trulyfree_tablet 

A Truly Free Tablet Program

We believe free access to substantive educational programming and free communication options are a necessity for successful rehabilitation. Unlike other vendors, Edovo does not charge incarcerated individuals or their loved ones for tablet usage, educational content, or entertainment rewards. 

icon_commission_free_contracts

Commission-Free Contracts

Required commission payments often cause communication rates and fees to be higher than necessary. Edovo works with partner agencies to find creative solutions to reduce facility cost. We also propose no commission payment structures to all of our potential partners in an attempt to reduce communication rates and fees as much as possible.

icon_local_partnerships

Local Service Partnerships

As correctional partners, we believe engaging with local community groups is essential to driving tangible outcomes. That's why we open our platform to service organizations and work to connect community groups with local incarcerated populations.
