WPA is a service and advocacy organization committed to helping women with criminal justice histories realize new possibilities for themselves and their families. Our program services make it possible for women to obtain work, housing, and health care; to rebuild their families; and to participate fully in civic life.

WPA provides direct assistance to approximately 2500 women and their families each year. We offer an integrated continuum of services to criminal justice-involved women in response to five key areas of need: livelihood, housing, family, health and well-being, and criminal justice compliance. 

Our programs are based in jail and prisons, as well as in the community.  We help women at different stages of involvement with the criminal justice system address their current needs and plan for their futures.
