The degree of civilization in a society can be judged by entering its prisons.
~ Fyodor Dostoevsky
It is the goal of Words Within The Walls to educate and encourage the relationship between the inmate and the public to be positive, compassionate, supportive and constructive. Helping an inmate through the development of compassionate and supportive relationships will enable an inmate to obtain a greater benefit from their rehabilitation so they may return to society as a positive, productive member of society, reducing the chances for them to become a repeat offender.
Many prisoners, as a result of bad choices they made and the circumstances which led to their incarceration, have found themselves alienated and abandoned by friends and family members. Combining that with the isolation and confinement that prison life brings, can result in a very negative effect making proper mindset and successful rehabilitation extremely difficult for an inmate.
Your time and effort can be a key factor in helping them to facilitate positive changes and provide them with hope. Your time and effort can help break the constricting mental barrier that results from incarceration, leading to a more positive way of thinking and widening their perspective. Positive relationships can help an inmate understand that better choices can be made, and by making better choices can lead them to a happier, more fulfilling life for the remainder of their time served and when they are released back into the public.
