Below is a list of resources for formerly incarcerated women. We hope you will find them useful and helpful.

Women’s Prison Association

The Women’s Prison Association, founded in 1865, is the nation’s oldest service and advocacy organization committed to helping women with criminal justice histories see new possibilities for themselves and their families. WPA offers a host of useful information and resources on issues facing these women and our families, in addition to housing, health, employment and family services and leadership and advocacy training.

The National Institute of Corrections and the Women’s Prison Association partnered to create a searchable online National Directory of Programs for Women with Criminal Justice Involvement. This database provides a place where practitioners, policymakers, and community members can find information on programs and services for women in the criminal justice system. The database includes state-by-state programs and services for women at all stages of criminal justice involvement, both in correctional facilities and in the community.
