This department helps with a lot of the personal aspects of an inmate’s life. They offer substance abuse classes that an inmate can apply for using a Human Service Request Form (Appendix F). The public can call Human Services to get information regarding a death or hospitalization of a family member to an inmate. The inmate can also contact Human Services to let them know of a death or hospitalization of a family member. Human Services may be able to get the inmate a viewing at the funeral home or a hospital visit.
*UPDATE: The Bexar County Jail no longer allows inmates to get married.
If an inmate would like to be married by proxy he would have to make the request through Human Services. This is completely dependant on the judge that his case is assigned to. If the judge denies the request there is nothing more that can be done. Human Services will also provide notary services to inmates.
Human Services can be contacted at 210-335-6335.
