DictionaryFree Minds serves a specific population: youth incarcerated as adults in the DC Jail.  Although we wish we could provide services to all in need, we cannot.  However, we have compiled a variety of resources for educators, inmates, and returning citizens.  If you know of other programs that you believe should be listed here, please contact us at

I still have some ways to go especially when I get on the streets, but I feel like I did not waste my life away, like most do, while being here incarcerated. I found something I like, that isn't negative, and I plan on sticking to it. ... I can't thank you all enough.
