Based in Philadelphia, Coleman Center is located at 3950 D St in Philadelphia County, PA. Run by the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections, it offers various programs aimed at helping inmates reintegrate into society successfully. From educational to vocational, these initiatives focus on reducing the chances of reoffending. They aim to give inmates the skills they need to thrive once they're back in the community.

While incarcerated, reading is often the best use of time. Please note that books and magazines, puzzles, and word searches ordered for inmates must come directly from the publisher. This policy ensures that the items are new, untampered, and comply with the facility's regulations. Prisons and jails enforce this rule to prevent the introduction of contraband or prohibited materials. By restricting orders to publishers, the facility can better maintain security and control over the content entering the institution. Any books or magazines not received directly from the publisher will be rejected and not delivered to the inmate.
