My name is Kimberly, I am 27 and my husband Jamar is 22, We have 5 1/2 years left. I recently relocated with our children and my younger sister to Ontario, OR to be closer to him.
I have a cousin in law in TRCI, my brother in law is in SRCI, another brother in law that has been in Multnomah County for 3 years fighting a Murder case and my 13 yr old son father is in OSP.
I have dealt with the ODOC for a good 14 years and it never gets easier just more bearable.

I just want to say thank you to all the men and women on PTO, it's feels great to know I am not alone in this madness (The system we call Justice)LOL.

For anyone who needs info about SRCI or just need to talk. (send member a Private Message! personal email removed for member security.) (there is a sweet lady out here also who has resources for those trying to see there loved ones) I have her Info.

It has been about 10 months since the last time I have been here. Alot has happened in that time. My boyfriend was Moved from Santiam Correction Institution out to North Bend to Shutter Creek Correctional Institution. He was then moved back to Santiam and is now currently at Mill Creek Correctional Facility. Of course, I was not able to visit him when he was in North Bend. However, now that he is back in Salem, it makes it a little eaiser. At least he is now only 100 miles away. I saw him twice over the last weekend. It was hard for me, after all out meeting was under unusual circumstances. I had a friend who was in prison and when he was released, he paroled to my house. He stayed with me for about 3 months and every once in a while his friend would call. After my friend moved out to his own place, his friend called again. I took the call so that I could tell him that out mutual friend had moved. Anyway we started talking and now it has been over a year. Even though I have only known him while he has been in prison, this is one of the only relationships I have been in that has not been based on sex or money. Let's face it. We are not having sex, and I really don't send him enough money for that to be the basis of our relationship. They good news is that he will be out in 10 months. The bad news is he will have done 7 and 1/2 years. Him as well as myself fear that he will not be able to cope with the outside world ofter being locked up that long. But I believe with the proper support and encouragement, he will be able to make it. The hard part is not wating for him to get out. The hard part is going to be keeping him out. Oregon does not rehabilitate inmates. They are set up for failure. Job security for the ODOC I guess. It will be a long tough road, but with the support of his family and myself know he will make it.

I am glad you came back to PTO!!

Spend the next 10 months finding out if there are any 'hidden' resouces for your guy when he gets out. Contact Oregon CURE, there is a link on the OR DOC web site.

Most of all, get yourself ready! Here is a great thread regarding Coming Home:

When the doors open and they walk out.

hello. i signed up with pto just today. my situation is unique. PatricknBrandy got me this far. how? well, my newest neighbor, whome i love and cherish, sat and cried on her sons birthday and told me his story. he is just one year behind me in high school. i did not know him then, but feel like i have known him my whole life. patricknbrandy posted a thread that caught my google search of my neighbors son. he is at eoic and isnt ever slated to be out. im not his girlfriend, in fact, im married with children. but now i will write to him, and i will take up his defense and one day i will see him face to face. i believe in him. he doesnt know i exist. thank you for being here. im glad this forum is here.

I am new here, and still trying to figure out how to post, but I have a guy who is at SRCI. We met when I answered an online ad that he had placed looking for a penpal. We have been dating for over a year now. I live about 45 minutes away, and visit him 2-3 times a week.

I put a pic of us on here, so if anyone recognizes us, please say hi, as I am looking for some support as I don't get any from my family or friends.

Default New and old........

I have been out for about 3 years now. After filtering through the final bits of insanity encouraged by DOC, I am fully ready to contribute and help out the fellow ex-cons as much as possible. I have done some letter writing and what not since being released, and attended a function at maclarin(or however you spell it) in support of a friends son. I must say it was strange, very strange being in on the other side of things, I was sort of shell shocked the duration of the social........
Anyway, the name is Brendan, I did 6 years in several of Oregons lovely institutions. I still have friends in there that likely will never be released, and my heart is with them. I also have friends that are going to get out, want to change, but don't really know what to do, where or how to begin. My heart goes to all the loved ones of convicts in every state. My dad was loony enough to visit me every 2 weeks for my whole set. We are very close now. I didn't really understand why he was doing it at the time, it was hard to grasp really.
I really am trying not to ramble on, but stuff just wants to tumble out to this keyboard........
I am here because I want to support those affected by this system, by bad decisions, by chaos, etc. I am here because I have some ideas bouncing around ready to come out. I really want to set up some stronger support networks for folks coming out. I know I can help and I know I am creative enough to contribute original thought and creativity.
I am looking forward to chatting it up with you folks on here and seeing what I can learn and give as well.

Happy to have found this website!

Ramble and bounce away!! That is how things are changed. One persons rambling ideas, read by another, now are stronger.

Hi, I've have been reading the forums for months now and its been very helpful, so i figured i should introduce myself and become a member. I'm from Portland and my guy is in EOCI, we known each other for yrs now and before he fell we both were in relationship with different people. but we have always admire each other, unfortuantely our prior relationships fail and this year faith has brought US together and since Ive been his support. His doing measure 11 so its about 7+yrs down 5 already, its been hard on me being with someone so close but so far away, i have gone to see him twice and its been really hard on me knowing that i am leaving him behind. we have gone thru the same things we all go thru: letters,visits,pics,expensive calls, and lonely nights. All i want is to be his support and try to make things more easier for him in there. i know that's there is so much i can do but life out here is stressful enough and i don't want to worried him. so i would luv some feed back on others experiences on how i can become a great support for this 25yr old male in EOCI. thx

Welcome to PTO!!

What I have done over the last several trips through the system is to be a sort of filter for Fellah. Sharing part of my daily stresses and thoughts with him, but keeping things that he can't do anything about or will make him feel worse on the outside. It is a real delicate balance, as I am sure you can understand.

Above all, just be honest. Keeping some information to yourself is not dishonest. Just make sure what you do share is honest.

I am glad you found us!!

Hey girl! My man is also at EOCI, he got transfered there at the end of February. I know exactly what you mean about leaving him behind. I live 7 hours away and when I leave, the tears dont stop...but love makes you do crazy things and it also breaks down walls and builds bridges we didnt even know were possible. You have come so far girl...keep your head up and stay strong, he loves you and needs you. ***HUGS***
