INTRODUCTION TO PORTAL HOUSTON
Women are the fastest growing segment of the prison population, yet they are mostly low-level, non-violent
offenders. Women’s crimes are driven by unhealed trauma, socio-economic problems, and substance use
disorders. Women are not in prison because they are all bad people. They are there because they were in
pain, took a wrong turn, and their lives spiraled out of control. Portal Houston saw the need, and has
developed gender-specific programs to meet women’s criminogenic needs.
Please visit our site to find out what we do and why we do it. Then join us in this initiative.
Together we can reverse this trend.
