The Women’s Project is part of a unique partnership with public defender offices throughout NYC and the District Attorney of New York. The partnership identifies and secures the release of these women. And when they get out the Women’s Project provides each woman with transportation assistance (Metro Cards), help to connect with the services she needs such as food, clothing, housing, workforce training, employment, medical care and clinical support.
