Inmate Money

Each prison has a Commissary that was created to provide prisoners a bank account for prisoner money and for buying items not provided by the Bureau of Prisons.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people can deposit funds into these accounts by sending it by Western Union and the U.S. Postal Service.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends are able to send prisoners money through the postal service and have to send those funds to the address below and follow the policies listed below:

The money must be a money order that is made out to the prisoner’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. It is advisable to use a postal money order, since all non-postal money orders that are processed through the National Lockbox will be kept for a 15-day hold, and in this time the prisoner will not have access to the depsoit. The Bureau of Prisons will send back money orders that don’t have appropriate prisoner information but only if the envelope you sent it in has a valid return address. Cash and personal checks won’t be deposited to the prisoner’s account so do not send any checks or cash.

Inmate Programs

H.O.P.E (Helping Ourselves Pursue Excellence): The mission of H.O.P.E is to: 1) Create safe places for learning and healthy relationships; 2) To promote a sense of connectedness rather than individualism. H.O.P.E is men at various levels of development and with varying lengths of time served, meeting regularly for learning and support. The focus is on young men and their issues during incarceration. It involves peer mentoring to cultivate communal self-awareness, deep awareness of our human connectedness, awareness that all behaviors, choices and decisions affect our families, friends and communities. Participants acknowledge the impact of their actions on others and take personal responsibility for their actions, thoughts and behaviors. They learn life skills such as listening, body language and healthy communication, thinking styles, leadership, problem solving, conflict management, analysis of individual thinking and leadership styles, group development and job search skills. Participants enjoy opportunities to create through drama and art and to exercise teamwork in presentations and other activities.
Ministry of Theatre: The Ministry of Theatre is a live production that has been offering annual Christmas and Easter Plays for the community for over 15 years. It has become a theatrical masterpiece with incredible performers. Offenders are encouraged to showcase their talents and gifts for the event. Many of the offenders help to write the script as well as the music for each performance. The program provides a great opportunity to invite the public into the prison. These productions have fostered positive relationships with the community. The performances are offered throughout the week and are attended by over 1,000 guests. The time tested production continues to be a hit in the community and has brought fans from across the state.
