A Day in the Life of An Incarcerated Woman
What is prison life really like?
What are the challenges in returning to society?
Learn about life inside the prison walls of Massachusetts Correctional Institution in Framingham. What are the challenges these women face in trying to return to their communities? What can we do to help?
This prison opened in 1877 and was the second prison for women opened in the US. It is the oldest female correctional institution (of those still in operation) in the US. There are currently approximately 190 incarcerated women.
One incarcerated women has graciously agreed to share her story and experience with us.
A few dozen TTN women across many chapters have established valuable pen pal relationships with the women in MCI-Framingham.
