The National Women’s Prison Project (NWPP) was established in 2003, after seeing the needs of women who have experienced the criminal justice system being yet unmet in the community. There were several agencies that provided one or two essential services, but not one that attempted to address the needs using a holistic model. With the ever increasing number of females now being incarcerated, NWPP focuses on the gender based needs while providing on-going support, both inside of correctional facilities and on the outside.
NWPP MISSION is to provide comprehension, holistic reentry / survival skills and services to women both inside or released from correctional facilities while embracing them with a high level of dignity and respect to fully and successfully engage in life.
NWPP Goal to provide women with assistance and supportive networking resources for a smooth transition and successful reintegration back into their families and the community.
All services are individually based, and NWPP is small enough to provide the one-on-one experience women are seeking.
NWPP located in the Nimrod Building of Payne AME Community Out Reach Center 1701 Madison Avenue, Suite 505, Baltimore, MD 21217 inside the Nimrod Building. The office houses a computer lab for clients use, clients have full access to use of conference area for group sessions, NWPP have a volunteer office, clothing for applicants seeking employment, assistance with resume writing.
One unique thing about NWPP is that it will support each client who is earnestly seeking assistance, will personally advocate on their behalf and will hold each hand until the client is ready to stand on their own. NWPP will then cheerlead for each client. After that, NWPP will allow clients to return to help another like oneself! The model then perpetuates itself! Each one - teach one!
