This Giving Tuesday, we're supporting the Women's Prison Association!
We are proud to support the Women’s Prison Association this Giving Tuesday (and beyond).
Founded in 1845, WPA is the nation’s first service and advocacy organization dedicated solely to working with justice-involved women and their families: WPA partners with them (and their families) so they may lead safe, productive, and lawful lives in the community.
WPA serves 1,500 women and 500 children in New York City each year. Their expansive programming is tailored to women who are at risk of incarceration, currently imprisoned, or have recently returned home.
Uplift is doing something very specific to help: each client can purchase a bath towel ($4 with a $1 additional donation to WPA) for a WPA client. WPA clients are provided with towels at WPA shelters but usually only one because of the low supply. Other clients who are living elsewhere may not receive any. This is an easy, and tangible, way for us to help women who need US.
