Inmate Money

Each prison has a Commissary that was created to provide prisoners a bank-like account for prisoner funds and for purchasing things not provided by the Bureau of Prisons.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources may add funds into these Commissary accounts by sending it by the U.S. Postal Service and Western Union.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends can choose to send prisoners funds by way of the postal service and have to send those funds to the following address and follow the directions provided below:

The funds have to be in a money order made out to the prisoner’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. You should use a post office money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be kept for a 15-day holding period, and during this hold period the prisoner will not get the depsoit. The Bureau of Prisons will return funds that do not have appropriate prisoner information but only if the envelope you sent it in has a return address. Personal checks and cash won’t be accepted so don’t send checks or cash.

Inmate Programs

The Youthful Offender Program at Madison houses young men between the ages of 14 and 17 years old. They are received into a living unit specifically designed for this population. The Youthful Offender Program is maintained by ensuring a structured daily schedule, as well as placing a high priority on each young man obtaining his high school education. The program is driven by an incentive based system which is structured to encourage mature behavior. Reentry programming is also offered within this housing unit.
Sex Offender Risk Reduction Center (SORRC) provides assessment and basic sex offender education services to all inmates sentenced as or determined to be a sex offender. The SORRC program provides twenty hours of basic sex offender education with the goal of ensuring that all sex offenders committed to DRC are confronted with the effects of their offenses on their victims and encouraged to take responsibility for their actions. After completing the program, the inmates are transferred to their parent institution to complete their court ordered sentence.
Faith Based Reentry Dorm is a collaborative initiative and includes the following ministries: Alpha, Celebrate Recovery, Evangelism Explosion, Prison Fellowship, and Promise Keepers. We have several volunteer ministries as well, offering group and individual mentoring. Faith Based housing is also available for the men upon their release.

    I have zero experience with prisons or the law. My Dad was sent to MCF on Dec 10,2014. I miss him badly and wanna see and write him. I am so lost and confused about all the rules and regs. HELP!!!!!!

  2. Karen T says:

    Visiting at MaCI on B-side is a MAJOR hassle, esp. if you have any kind of handicap. You park on A-side, usually way at the back since all the places upfront are taken, walk all the way up to the A-side intake, and get processed in. THEN you go back to your car, drive over to B-side, find another parking place, and go through the metal detector and an abbreviated intake. WHY can’t B-side have intake identical to A-side so you don’t have to go through this rigamarole twice? I was on a walker following surgery when I visited and found this extremely aggravating.
