Programs
 

              
The Women’s Prison Association (WPA), founded in 1845, is the nation’s first organization dedicated solely to working with criminal justice-involved women and their families. Our mission is to create opportunities for change in the lives of women, families and communities directly impacted by incarceration. WPA’s services support women as they obtain work and safe housing, access drug treatment, physical and mental health care and rebuild their families. Our approach prioritizes working collaboratively with women and their families to define their own goals, lay out plans to achieve them and utilize an expanded realm of resources and opportunities. WPA’s programs are organized into three broad service areas including Family and Children’s Services, Reentry Services and Public Policy and Advocacy. WPA serves over 1,500 women and 500 children per year and operates from three community sites in Manhattan and East New York. WPA also has jail-based offices at Rikers Island’s Rose M. Singer Center, and at Taconic and Bedford Hills Correctional Facilities.
