Did you know we built a library of self-help documents for inmates and their loved ones over the decades? Check it out: WriteAPrisoner.com Self-help Series.

Will the inmate be given my mailing address?

Yes. We give the inmate whatever postal address you provide so he/she can respond to your letter. If you send your first message to an inmate via our email forwarding option, the inmate will be given your postal address and the email you used to register. This allows the inmate two options to contact you. If you do not want the inmate to have your email address, send your message directly instead of using our email forwarding option. You do not have to give your address to an inmate if you are willing to get a P.O. Box. In most cities, P.O. Boxes usually cost approximately $68.00 annually. Also, your local church may let you use their address. Churches tend to be very supportive of inmates maintaining contact with the outside world. Be sure to ask before doing this. When using a P.O. Box or church address, it may be possible to correspond with an inmate using only your first name. Prison policies vary, and you would need to contact the prison directly before doing this. Another option is to use your post office's General Delivery service. Please contact your local post office directly for additional information about this service.
