CLICK HERE to download Friends Over Fences' Pre-Release Inmate Checklist.

This is an ongoing project of Friends Over Fences and we welcome your input into the process.  If you have a suggestion please submit it to and our committee will review it.

Our goal is to get this into the hands of inmate who plan to be released.  Many of the items can be done while the inmate is still incarcerated.  In some instances the cost will be covered by the institution.  It is truly the inmates responsibility to talk with their counselors about each item.  But the more that is done in prison, the less will have to be worried about after their release.

Please feel to use this form with your family, friends and/or clients as needed.

This form is sent to inmates to fill out about themselves so we can try to match them to a PenPal.
