WPA is pleased to announce that we are one of 118 programs nationwide to receive funding under the Second Chance Act (SCA). The selection process was highly competitive; according to the Department of Justice’s Office of Justice Programs, DOJ received more than 1,000 applications for Second Chance funding this year.
WPA’s mentoring program, WomenCare, will now be offered to women on Riker’s Island. The program will connect women to volunteer mentors in the community. Mentors will provide support to women as they transition back into the community and pursue their goals.
If you are interested in becoming a WomenCare volunteer, please contact us.
