Five easy steps

To download our app and get started communicating today!

Our youth are always thinking and tinkering. Their valuables such as artwork, projects, grades and other accomplishments can be easily shared with their parent.

We encourage youth to take photos of those valuables so that they can be shared through the Photo Patch app. Once they have the pictures, they simply click “Upload”.

After youth upload photos and letters to our app, we will print, package and ship the “snail mail” for them…and for FREE!

Before the parent receives the correspondence from the child, the prison will inspect it. We remind youth and their parents to follow prison guidelines so that there are no problems.

Currently, incarcerated parents do not have access to the Photo Patch app, but they can reply to their child via “snail mail”.
