Transitional Housing Program (THP)

THP is a voluntary program that provides residency and support services to parolees to enable successful reintegration into their communities. The program offers services that focus on Long Term Offenders (LTOs) needs such as employment, job search and placement training, stress management, victim awareness, computer supported literacy, and life skills. Substance Abuse education and a 52-week certified domestic violence program is provided to applicable parolees. The program is to provide peer-driven support, assistance, and guidance to newly released LTOs.
