These inmates are very real and are seeking pen pals! Receiving a letter is the highlight of the day for most prisoners. Just think of how lonely it must feel at mail call to never hear your name being called, especially after being locked up for several years and family and friends have deserted you. These inmates can't wait to hear from you!
Writing to prisoners unlocks more than you would think
Write A Prisoner - Prison Pen Pals
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 and 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.
We have a new support number, which is now active. To contact our team please dial Due to an update on our system, the way to add your recipient has changed.
