Gender-Informed Practice Assessment at Logan Correctional Center

From the National Resource Center on Justice Involved Women and the Women's Justice Initiative, this report was authored by Executive Director of CORE Associates, Alyssa Benedict, and the Women’s Justice Initiative Founder & Project Director, Deanne Benos. It is the result of the comprehensive Gender-Informed Practice Assessment (GIPA) that was conducted at Logan Correctional Center in October 2015, which was the first-ever gender responsive assessment conducted by IDOC at any women’s prison. The Assessment Team included both Gwyn Troyer, Director of JHA's Prison Monitoring Project, and Lynn Cahill-Masching, a former JHA Board Member.
