Sheriff's Women's Justice Programs

Home > Departments >Womens Justice Programs

The Cook County Sheriff’s Women’s Justice Programs were established in 1999 as a direct response to address the unique needs of the increasing number of women entering the Cook County criminal justice system.   Women’s Justice currently administers the following three programs:

Women’s Residential Program (WRP): a 160 bed intensive in-patient treatment program offered in a modified therapeutic community setting within the Cook County Jail, which includes the entire pregnant/post-partum female population effective October 2010.

Sheriff’s Female Furlough Program (SFFP):  is twofold; an outpatient day-reporting program where women are required to report daily for treatment and case management services, returning home in the evening to care for their families while on electronic monitoring.

There are also non-reporters monitored 24 hours a day and only allowed movement with approval from the Sheriff’s office or Courts.

MOM’s Program: a 24 bed off-site community-based treatment program for pregnant and parenting women and their preschool age children offered in a safe, supportive environment that promotes the mother/child bond.

All SWJP programs incorporate a trauma informed integrated model of treatment that addresses the complex issues impacting women’s functioning and substance use in a safe, supportive treatment environment.

We understand that the Sheriff’s Women’s Justice Programs are the beginning phases of the participant’s recovery process, and treatment that begins in Women’s Justice must continue in the community. Therefore, discharge planning begins as soon as women are admitted into programming utilizing a comprehensive screening process. This enables the multidisciplinary treatment team to quickly identify immediate needs and develop individualized treatment and discharge plans for community re-entry.
