The Salvation Army Residential Re-Entry Center is a contract facility under the Federal Bureau of Prisons to house federal offenders and prepare them to return to society. We are a self - sufficient program that operates under a daily perdiem.
The criteria are Non - violent clients and the components are as follows.
PRE-RELEASE COMPONENT: These referrals are from Federal Correctional Institutions and the average placement is from one to six months. These residents are allowed to work in the community and Return to the center in the evenings. Also, twice a week they can go home on "free time" Until 9:00 PM and weekend passes form Friday at 4:00 PM to Sunday at 9:00 PM. The Purpose of this program is to help the resident re-build family and community ties. We provide services directly to the Federal Bureau of Prisons clients.
COMMUNITY CORRECTIONS COMPONENT: Generally these referrals are from the United States Probation Office and the average placement is from two to six months. These residents are placed in our facility asan alternative to incarceration due to the fact that they were on Supervise Release and Violated the conditions of their Supervised Release. These residents are "only" allowed to work in the community and return to the center immediately after work. "Free time or Weekend passes" are not permitted for these residents. We provide services directly to United States Probation Office, but the Federal Bureau of Prisons is responsible for payment and placement of these residents.
HOME CONFINEMENT: Clients under this program are those that were previously in the Pre-Release Component and due to their good behavior (following all rules and regulations) are placed in the Home Confinement (able to reside at their approved residence). Those clients under this program are required to report to the center twice a week. Also, the Employment Specialist visits them twice a week, once at the client's home and once at the client's work site. It is a requirement for these clients to report twice a week to the facility. We provide services directly to Federal Bureau of Prisons clients.
DRUG AND ALCOHOL AFTERCARE/HISTORY: Clients under this category are required to attend an hour group educational class a week. These clients are offenders that were not using drugs or alcohol within the year of their incarceration (were clean for more than a year prior to incarceration).
PRE-TRIAL SERVICES (PT): These are referrals from Federal Pre-Trial Services who are presently on bond waiting for sentencing. These residents are "only" allowed to work in the community and return to the center. No "free time or weekend passes" permitted. In these specific cases we prepare them for incarceration.
