Sending a Mail/Care Package

When an inmate is in the Iowa State Prison, they are not, not allowed to communicate with those outside of the prison walls.

To be honest, the Iowa State Prison wants the inmates to communicate with their friends and family. They want these inmates to have the best possible support system for when they get out of the facility.

Sending Money

When you need to go to the store on the outside Iowa State Prison, you need money. Well, this same concept is also on the inside of the prison as well.

The commissary acts like the prison acts like the store. Within the commissary, the inmate can purchase a variety of items just like you and I can do when we go to the store.

For them to do this, they will need to have money. You can send the inmate up to $300 a month for them to purchase said items at the commissary.

Phone calls

When you want to hear the inmates voice, you will need to wait for them to call you from the facility. You will never be allowed to call them from home. You will always have to wait for them to call you.


If you are local or even if you live far away and you are more than welcome to visit the inmate while they are in the Iowa State Prison. However, it is recommended to get in contact with the facility for heading out this way.
