Pennsylvania Prison Society
Pennsylvania Prison Society - Mentoring for formerly incarcerated
The Prison Society's mentoring program operates both pre-release in SCI Chester and SCI Phoenix, as well as post-release for anyone on parole returning to the Philadelphia area. We partner with Broad Street Ministry to provide holistic supports to people coming home.

The program helps prepare incarcerated individuals for success mentally, emotionally, and logistically. After a series of workshops on relevant topics (such as social media, applying for medical benefits, securing housing, and obtaining education and jobs) mentees are assigned to mentors, to meet one-on-one for at least six months to develop and achieve a personalized goal plan. We are also working with soon to be released juvenile lifers across the state to help them bridge into life outside in the community.
