Women's Prison Association
Clinical Director, JusticeHome
New York, NY, USA


Miriam Goodman is Clinical Director of WPA's alternative to incarceration program, JusticeHome. JusticeHome is a trauma-informed and gender-responsive alternative to incarceration program for women of all experiences. JusticeHome is a community and home based program designed to support women so they can stay in their communities rather than serving time in jail or prison. JusticeHome specializes in working with survivors of trauma, specifically survivors of intimate partner violence and other forms of gender based violence. JusticeHome recognizes that an individual’s past experiences of trauma can contextualize their current involvement in the criminal legal system. Miriam was formerly the Assistant Director of Anti-trafficking and Trauma Initiatives at the Center for Court Innovation where she provided training to judges, lawyers, and clinicians on trauma and working with trafficking survivors.
