Illinois Prison Project

As part of its mission in community service, and in partnership with the Illinois Prison Project to address health inequalities for terminally ill incarcerated individuals, the Foundation has provided funding to the IPP in support of the Joe Coleman Medical Release Act HB3665.

The IPP has provided pro bono legal and medical assistance to individuals seeking release under this program to present their cases to the Illinois Parole Board, and to provide for suitable post-release care. To date the IPP has secured the compassionate release of 84 individuals.
