​The mission of the Pennsylvania Prison Society is to advocate for humane prisons and a rational approach to criminal justice.


At the same time the need in our community has dramatically increased, the revenue we depend on has decreased.

Help us bridge the gap by making a gift today.

Your support will help fund our critical work during this  important time.


IN ONE MONTH, more than 230 inmates and family members contact the Society for help.

IN ONE YEAR, friends & family take more than 2,300 rides on Society buses to visit incarcerated loved ones.

FOR MORE THAN  230 YEARS, the Society has led the nation in calling for a just and humane criminal justice system.


Due to the COVID-19 crisis, our transportation service has been temporarily suspended.


The Family Transportation Services Program offers affordable bus services from Philadelphia to all Pennsylvania state correctional institutions (excluding SCIs Camp Hill, Chester, and Graterford).
