Pen-Pal Program

The Pen-Pal Christian Correspondence Program was developed in response to a need for Christians to reach out and show the love of Jesus to those behind prison walls and that they can be forgiven for their sins by His grace and mercy through written encouragement.

Our mission is to be able to provide caring, understanding, and compassion to the downtrodden. You can have an opportunity to give them hope where there is no hope—a light in a very dark world. You will be able to take to heart Jesus’ word in Matthew 25: “When I was in prison, you came to visit me….” In this case, not physically, but through writing.


The Pen-Pal Training Manual is available in English and Español.

A Pen-Pal Support Kit is also available.
