We’ve compiled some of the many resources available to women in prison and their families, friends and advocates. You can also get the resource list in a printer-friendly PDF.

This list was last updated in July 2017. If you know of a resource that should be added—or one that should be deleted, updated or corrected—please let us know at chicagobwp@gmail.com.

WE'LL BE CLOSED—NO DONATIONS Sunday, Sept. 29 & Saturday, Oct. 5

IMPORTANT: Learn more before donating books
Check with us before organizing a book drive or putting together a donation of more than a few books from your own library. We are well stocked and storage space is limited.

3,939 packages so far in 2019

Last year we sent 4,852 packages to women and trans people locked up across the country—nearly 13,500 books and composition books in all. Big thanks to all our supporters because we couldn’t do it without you! (updated October 13, 2019)
