PRISONFRIENDSHIP - Write a prisoner - prison pen pals-
Still waiting for someone to write to them

WHY WRITE A PRISONER?

We believe that all prisoners benefit from the support and encouragement of non-incarcerated individuals. Having a connection with someone in the free world significantly affects the inmates thinking, attitude, and behavior… not to mention the powerful impact it has on their well being as a whole. No matter the reason to write a prisoner, becoming a pen-pal to an inmate in jail will make a huge difference in their life.

Based on our own experience and information provided by prison advocacy groups & the Federal Bureau of Prisons, pen-pal programs such as PrisonFriendship.com have consistently reduced recidivism rates among incarcerated individuals. So why write a prisoner? Because prisoners having strong support systems independent of their immediate family makes the transition back into society much easier; therefore, pen pal programs like PrisonFriendship play a major role in an offender’s reintegration and reentry into their communities.

Outside of being an inspiration and agent of change in a prisoner’s life, becoming a pen pal can build a lifelong friendship. Men and women prisoners have a lot to offer and can really be the kind of friend you need in your life. Most of the inmates who took the time to think about their choices and really work on themselves, have become better people. As a result, they have transformed who they are and are worthy of genuine friendship. So why write a prisoner? Because having a few prison penpals adds something meaningful to your life and makes the world a better place through it all.

Our Mission

Our mission in creating our prison pen pal service was to provide a way for the millions of people incarcerated to meet new people. We do understand the importance and value of having healthy positive relationships, no matter your circumstances, especially for those in prison. Write to a prisoner to change a life – Maybe your own!

Doing time alone is a terrible thing. As many prisoners have limited contact with their families or nobody at all. We also believe that having support and encouragement while in prison is essential to their transition back into society and reducing recidivism. And no one can deny that there needs to be change when it comes to the prison system. So it is for these reasons that this website was born. Reach out to a  PF member today, write a prisoner and become a part of the solution.

Special organizations and groups we think are
worth highlighting, IN ONE WAY OR ANOTHER, THEY ALL WORK
TO MAKE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE.

MLMT
 MYLIFEMATTERSTOO is an incentive which comes out of the aspirations of Quentin Jones #302373. MI who is an incarcerated individual in the Michigan Department of Corrections. He was sentenced at nineteen to life without the possibility of parole and has already served over two decades in the American prison system. In 2018, he joined up with Marianne Teresa Ruud who is a high school English teacher in Norway to develop and establish MLMT.

This will soon be an organization. Ms. Ruud and her high school students have been working on collaborative school projects with those on the inside since the beginning of 2014. Coupling the reality of providing a platform through MLMT to give a voice to the women and men incarcerated in the American prison system while teaching and educating young minds through the process, is a special and innovative approach which MLMT hopes will develop and mature.
