Pennsylvania Prison Society Centre County Chapter

Hidden from public view, life behind bars often goes unnoticed. Prisons isolate people from the supports they need to contribute when they come home. Our mission is to advance the health, safety, and dignity of the people in jails and prisons across the Commonwealth. We provide assistance to incarcerated people and their families, work to ensure vital support networks are kept alive while someone is incarcerated, and provide a window into the closed world of prisons, exposing and addressing the most serious issues.

The prison monitors of the Centre County Chapter visit incarcerated people at the Centre County jail and at the Rockview and Benner State Correctional Institutions. We sit down one-on-one with incarcerated people who are experiencing problems and elevate concerns directly with staff or others who may be able to help when conditions impact health and safety.
