General Reentry Resources within this website

Residential Reentry Centers - RRC (halfway houses)

Residential Reentry Centers -RRCs are operated under Bureau of Prisons contracts and more commonly known as halfway houses (this USBOP site addresses operations, locations, FAQs, etc.).  The RRCs are designed to provide the returning inmate a smoother, more gradual transition back into the community by allowing them to live closer to their eventual release address to search for employment, receive training, work once a job is found, establish a residence, reconnect with family, access and establish services through local community resources, and build a relationship with the U.S. Probation Office.
