(Updated February 24, 2024)
Sometimes we make choices in life that are wrong, and the results are life changing. That doesn't change how human we are, how we need to be loved and cared for, how we long for acceptance from other human beings. Everyone on this site is in prison, some for short periods of time, and others for longer. These are real women with a real need for respect and dignity in a world that has taken most of that away from them.
Some of these women have families outside, and some have no one to look forward to going home to when they get out. Connections to friends in the outside world could make the difference between the incentive to stay out and giving up in futility and going back to prison where they know they'll at least have their food and shelter taken care of.
You can make a difference in someone's life, and possibly change their future, with your letters of encouragement.
