The Women's Project: Essential Supplies

Women come home from Riker's every day. They need hygiene items, emergency food, toiletries, diapers, even toys for their children during this crisis.

Overview

Every day women are being released from Rikers Island in New York City. The Women’s Project is an alternative to pre-trial detention for women incarcerated at Rikers Island that uses essential services, community networks and supportive group-based programming as an alternative to unaffordable bail.

Women returning to the community are faced with a host of immediate challenges. They need hygiene products, emergency food resources, toiletries, diapers for their children, toys and games so their children can be active and engaged while at home during this extended period of social distancing.

You can help these women and their families in their start toward long-term stability.

Please click donate to provide critical support to women returning to the community.
