Get Free4Life for a Loved One
You may be wondering how you can bring 24-hour messages of hope and restoration through Free4Life’s inspirational TV programming to your family member or friend who is incarcerated.
Download a letter you can send to a prison chaplain, warden, or an inmate to share more information about receiving a free satellite installation of The Word Network for their facility. Coming soon is a downloadable brochure you can send along with the letter.
It is recommended to follow-up personally with the chaplain or warden to increase the probability that your request has been received and acted upon.
Each correctional facility must initiate and submit a request to be eligible to receive a free Free4Life installation
Even if they are interested, chaplains and wardens typically require approval from a higher level correctional official to add religious channels to their TV distribution. But you can plant the seed that gets the process going!
Families and Friends
Ask any man or woman behind bars what their greatest need is and the answer is always the same — to know that someone still cares about them. But empathy and communication can be a tremendous challenge when someone is living in a world we know nothing about. That’s where trusted resources can be invaluable.
The topics listed below cover primary areas of concern for the loved ones of prisoners. Each box contains links to a variety of materials that can supply wisdom and guidance for the families and friends of inmates — both during and after incarceration. Special thanks to Prison Fellowship Ministries for compiling and sharing this vital information with all of us.
Coping with the incarceration of a loved one
The incarceration of a loved one can be overwhelming. Where do you turn for help? These resources will help you know what to expect after someone you care about has been arrested, and how to cope before, during, and after their sentence.
Helping kids deal with incarceration
Children with a loved one in prison too often end up “doing time” for someone else’s mistake. These resources can help foster important conversations, while providing hope and understanding during difficult situations.
