Halfway House Programs
Correctional Transitions Unit (CTU)
Kansas City, Missouri
The Correctional Transitions Unit (CTU) residential program is a 53 bed program funded by the Missouri Department of Corrections. The goal of the program is to provide structured support to offenders who need assistance in making a successful transition to the community.
The CTU residential program is designed with a length of stay of 45-120 days, dependent on each person's progress. All residents are required to secure employment and participate in programming to address problems identified in the Transitional Accountability Plan (TAP) during the case management assessment. A number of residents have co-occurring mental health and substance abuse issues. Experienced case managers work with each resident to enhance the probability of successful re-entry into the community.
Federal Residential Reentry Center (RRC)
Kansas City, Missouri
KCCC provides structured residential services for federal offenders. The RRC assists offenders released from Federal prisons in their transition back into the community, and we offer intensive case management, employment assistance and transitional support. Within forty-eight hours of admission, each offender assigned to this facility receives a comprehensive assessment addressing all life areas. In addition, the offenders complete a self assessment identifying his/her goals and release plans. An Offender Re-Entry Plan is completed within ten days of offender admission. This plan reflects identified need areas, goals, interventions, target dates, community resources to be engaged in the plan, and specific on-site programs to which the offender is referred. Progress reviews are conducted, at minimum, every two weeks.
The staff at KCCC are professionally trained to support the residents in their efforts for a successful reentry into the community and compliance with criminal justice system requirements.
Substance Abuse Treatment and Other Offender Programs
Jackson County, Missouri
KCCC was selected in 2005 to provide treatment services for the Jackson County Drug Court. The Drug Court is a partnership of criminal justice agencies and a treatment provider who work together to meet the needs of drug abusing offenders. The program is a deferred prosecution model where a criminal court commissioner in a courtroom setting uses his or her authority to motivate and assist offenders to complete substance abuse treatment and other obligations. Clients who successfully complete the program, which is a minimum of one year, receive a dismissal of their criminal charge. KCCC provides the assessment, and either outpatient or intensive outpatient treatment for each of the drug court candidates.
