Call in to speak with the host
December 2001, we began a campaign to find pen pals for women serving long terms at the California Institution for Women in Corona, California. In 2003, we expanded our project to two more prisons located in central California (Chowchilla) and since then we have added women in two prisons in Texas, and another prison in Denver, Colorado. As of July 20, 2012, a total of 632 incarcerated women have found a pen pal though this program. Our “outside” pen pals range in age from 21 to their mid 80’s. They live all over the U.S. with 6 from England, 6 from Canada, 1 from Wales; 1 from Sweden; 1 from Croatia, 1 from Amsterdam, 3 in Australia and 2 from Dubai (United Arab Emirates). We hope you will consider joining them! There are currently 33 women in prison on our list who are waiting for a pen pal, plus many other “inside” women who we would like to invite to join this program. Please contact us so YOU can choose YOUR pen pal from our list. “I am truly enjoying the experience with my pen pal....my heart goes out to the poor inmates, whatever they are in for, a horrible place to be. It's amazing that there are such positive things taking place in an environment with so much negativity. A tribute to the power of the human mind and spirit.” We only accept women as pen pals.
