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

This list was last updated in December 2014. If you know of a resource that should be added—or one that should be updated or corrected—please let us know at chicagobwp@gmail.com.
