Easing Re-entry for Women in Philadelphia: Civil Legal Needs

The Women’s Law Project is pleased to announce the publication of two new booklets to help Philadelphia women re-entering society from incarceration with their many legal needs. Easing Re-entry for Women in Philadelphia: Civil Legal Needs contains two parts, each in its own booklet.

Part 1: General Re-entry provides information and resources on topics such as Health Care, Housing, Employment, Public Benefits (Cash, Food, and Medical), Money, and Utilities.

Part 2: Family Law provides information on child custody, DHS custody, child support, domestic violence, and divorce. These self-help booklets are intended to provide general legal information and are not meant to be used as legal advice.

PDF versions below and can also be found on WLP’s website at www.womenslawproject.org. Feel free to duplicate and distribute.

We hope these booklets will be helpful to case workers as well as to the women themselves.

Fellow Kathleen Creamer contributed to the development of this resource guide.
