Women’s Prison Assocation (WPA)
WPA works with women at all stages of criminal justice involvement. They promote alternatives to incarceration and help women living in the community to avoid arrest or incarceration by making positive changes in their lives. Inside prison and jail, they are a source of support to women and a resource to them as they plan for release. After incarceration, women go to WPA for help to build the lives they want for themselves and their families in the community.
