Why does this website exist?
Because prisoners should not be forgotten. Prisoners have always asked for visitors. Before the Internet existed, prisoners advertised for pen pals in newspapers and magazines.

Visiting the imprisoned is a work of mercy taught by the Catholic Church and encouraged and practiced by countless faith-based and other Christian and humanitarian organizations. The Bible makes it clear that prisoners are not to be forgotten.

Even DOC officials encourage prisoners to have pro-social contacts with caring people in the free world through correspondence. They know that when prisoners socialize only with other prisoners they are more likely upon release to continue the same behavior patterns that led to their incarceration. When prisoners isolate themselves from other prisoners, they are less likely to reoffend. When prisoners maintain strong ties to family and friends, they are less likely to reoffend. The stronger the support system that is waiting for prisoners when they are released from prison, the better their chances for success.

If every law-abiding and caring adult would pick up a pen, write an inmate, and become an inmate pen pal the recidivism rate in this country would plummet, and our world would be a better place.
