Would you write an inmate? Did you know that there are over 2 million people incarcerated in the United States? The goal of Friends For Felons is to help rehabilitate inmates and transition them back into society upon release and overall play a part in putting a dent in that 2 million. We never really think of the rising prison population as really affecting us, however if you look at the big picture it affects us all. Did you know that out of those 2 million mentioned above that over 90 percent of those prisoners will be released one day? One of the major conflicts that Prisoners face while incarcerated is the need of communication to the outside world. Research shows that positive human relations play a major role in rehabilitation and are strong predictors of successful re-entry. By writing an inmate your positive contact could help foster that prisoner’s integration back into society and overall, you will play a part in helping reduce the United State’s 67% recidivism rates.
Are you considering writing an prisoner? Take a look through our inmate profiles and I’m sure you can find someone that sparks your interest. Keep in mind that some Inmates do have access to email so if you are not big on letter writing then look for one that has email access. If you find an inmate with email access you can submit your email address to us and we will forward it to them to add and once added you will receive an email from the institution for acceptance and can then correspond with an inmate via email. We thank you for your support in taking the time to become a pen-pal to an inmate. Your becoming a pen-pal to a prisoner could be the beginning of a major impact on the life of someone that has been forgotten. Thank you and feel free to contact us with any questions, concerns, or recommendations. Also check this book out and help support a former inmate, that was inspired to write this while incarcerated and make a positive change in his life. “Handcuffed”
