The purpose of this site is to bring Hope and Encouragement into the lives of all our inmate members through pen pal letters. We want to help build connection and redefine what community really means for them. By treating these prisoners (and their families) with dignity, one letter at a time, you can help make a difference.
Our Vision: A Pen Pal for every Prisoner

"Hi my name is Ty Juane Pridgen, I am an incarcerated man from Virginia. I was 18 years old in 1995 when I first got incarcerated over twenty years ago. I would like to Thank Inmate Ink for allowing me to share their platform so the world could know that I do exist. Thanks Inmate Ink."
"I'm glad this site is working well and you have free world people to write to those on your site. I hope I'll get lucky and find at least one real, loyal, true friend. That's my hope."
"U have a good heart and have compassion towards those locked away...Best Wishes."

"I'm extremely interested in becoming a member of Inmate Ink."
"Your newsletter was hugely informative...you're an incredibly awesome lady."
