Introduction
The purpose of this directory is to provide a listing of agencies in
Pennsylvania, and to some extent nationwide, that serve the needs of
prison inmates, victims of crimes and their families, criminal justice
professionals, volunteers and support persons. This directory is also
intended to promote networking among the sometimes isolated
                                                                            C

agencies doing great work within the criminal justice system.
The compilation, publication and distribution of this directory are the
cumulative efforts throughout the past 18 years of professionals,
volunteers, inmates and concerned citizens.
Special recognition goes to Mr. Angus Love, Esquire, of the
Pennsylvania Institutional Law Project and Ms. Marie Hamilton,
founder of CentrePeace, Inc., for their leadership, support and
commitment to this directory. Both of these individuals have dedicated




                                                                            A
their lives to making a difference in the criminal justice system and the
lives it affects.
Thanks are also extended to the Pennsylvania Department of
Corrections for their cooperation in distributing the directory to
correctional institutions throughout the Commonwealth.
Special thanks also go to CentrePeace’s staff and volunteers for the
hours of assistance they provided in making this directory possible. In
particular, Ms. Tonya Young, CentrePeace’s office manager, spent
countless hours compiling, editing and coordinating this latest update.
