Self-help Series

Welcome to WriteAPrisoner's Self-Help Series! More must be done to reduce recidivism, and we have developed these self-help guides to help inmates help themselves. Both pen-pals and inmates have asked us many questions about these topics. Using every resource available to us we have researched these topics and developed self-help guides to promote self-responsibility and self-betterment before, during and after incarceration. Pen-pals are encouraged to print and mail these directly to inmates..
