Supportive Housing and Justice-Involved Women

Supportive housing for women with criminal justiceinvolvement makes sense because it:

  • Addresses risks for future criminal activity

  • Promotes family stability and positive outcomes for children

  • Saves money


Why focus on women
Why Focus on Women?

More than 1,000,000 women are currently involved in the criminal justice system (1 out of every 109 adult women) and now account for 7% of state and federal prison populations.

The number of women in prison has increased at nearly double the rate of men since 1985 (404% versus 209%).

The Sentencing Project (May 2007); NCCD (July 2007)


At the end of 2009, there were 105,197 women incarcerated in State or Federal prisons.

2464 of those women were incarcerated in New York State.

These numbers do not include approximately 900,000 women in local jails or under correctional supervision in the community (probation, parole, alternative to incarceration programs).
