How can you help?

Pen Pal 



Studies have shown that prisoners who maintain consistent contact and connection with society during their sentences have a lower recidivism rate than those who do not. Become a Pen Pal today. No information of yours would be shared with the inmate. We use our PO box and you only share your first name. 
Reentry is challenging on many levels. Within three years of release, 67.8 percent of ex-offenders are rearrested, and within five years, 76.6 percent are rearrested. Having a mentor to assist in this process is extremely critical. Are you a formerly incarcerated person looking to help out? Consider becoming a PCtP Mentor!
