Prisoner Reentry Network values efficiency – we honor your contribution by weighing each of our expenses against the benefit derived by simply paying a formerly incarcerated person’s rent. That’s a really high bar, and we believe our work meets it. Our staff volunteers their time, and our materials are produced inexpensively for wide distribution. PRN is a 501(c)(3) and welcomes your tax-deductible donations.

SAN LUIS OBISPO, CA - DECEMBER 20: Frank Fuller, age 66, walks down the hall to his cell at California Men's Colony prison on December 20, 2013 in San Luis Obispo, California. Fuller is assisted by the Gold Coats program, a volunteer care program where healthy prisoners volunteer to take care of elderly prisoners who either need general assistance with mobility and every day life or who also struggle with Alzheimer's and dementia. The program, the first of it's kind in the country, has existed for approximately 25 years; there are currently 11 "Gold Coats." Fuller is serving a 35-years-to-life sentence; he has been incarcerated since 1990. He has been in the Gold Coats program for over six years. He says he is serving time for the murder of his third wife, who he says he shot with a rifle in a drunken rage after learning she had been having an affair with another man. He has been diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder from serving five years in the Navy in the Vietnam War; he also has Hepatitis C. Fuller, who took shrapnel in his legs from a mortar round in Vietnam, says he held many different positions while fighting in Vietnam, including being a machine gunner; he says he still suffers occasional flash backs. He says has served one other sentence for murdering a man with a .45 gun in a fight. Between Vietnam and prison, he says he worked in the oil fields and in manufacturing. Fuller uses a cane to get around, and is constantly worried prison officials will move him to California Medical Facility, a prison for inmates with medical issues.
