Guest Application

“A home away from home for families who visit their loved ones in prison.”

Please read the following carefully before filling out your application to reserve a room at The Matthew 25 Center.

Important Note:

Before contacting The Matthew 25 Center to make your reservation, you must call the jail or prison where your loved one resides and schedule your visit with them. Then fill out the entire application below.  When we receive your application, we will verify that your visit has been scheduled with the inmate. Once we verify your scheduled visit, we will call or email you to confirm your reservation at The Matthew 25 Center.

The Matthew 25 Center cannot accept reservations for persons who do not have scheduled visitation appointments at a prison. However, if you are accompanied by a person that will not be visiting your loved one, they may stay at the Center until your visit is over.

No appointment will be made with less than a 24 hour notice. Please schedule your visit with the prison well in advance to comply with this requirement. Also please schedule your arrival time at the Matthew 25 Center no later than 10:00 pm.

Should you need any further information or need to cancel your reservation, please contact us at 910-259-7133 or by email at

We look forward to meeting you!
