Women's Prison and Re-Entry Project

Organization: Women's Bar Foundation

The Women's Prison and Re-Entry Project serves women incarcerated in Massachusetts’ prisons and jails, or those who have been involved with the criminal justice system. Currently, the Project operates at MCI-Framingham and South Bay House of Correction in Suffolk County and at Kingston House, a post-release program in Boston.  In teams, volunteer attorneys meet with women and answer questions regarding family law, child custody, care and protection, housing, CORI, and criminal warrant clearing. 

The Women's Prison and Re-Entry Project meets quarterly at 5:30 PM at the WBF office.
