Southeast Texas Transitional Center
Houston, TX 77078
UPDATE THIS LISTING
Residential reentry center, also known as halfway house, to provide assistance to inmates who are nearing release. Residential reentry centers provide a safe, structured, supervised environment, as well as employment counseling, job placement, financial management assistance, and other programs and services. Residential reentry centers help inmates gradually rebuild their ties to the community and facilitate supervising ex-offenders' activities during this readjustment phase. An important component of the RRC program is transitional drug abuse treatment (TDAT) for inmates who have completed residential drug abuse program (RDAP) while confined in a BOP institution.
There are 412 beds for males at this halfway house.
Halfway Housing helps transition individuals and families from shelters or homelessness to permanent housing. Length of stay is usually anywhere from 6 months to 2 years. Residents are often required to pay at least 30% of their income toward program fees. Sometimes the money they pay in fees is returned to them when they leave. Any emergency or homeless shelter that allows their clients to stay more then 6 months is also classified under this category.
Oftentimes halfway houses also assist in the treatment of substance abuse and/or alcohol and drug detox. Speak with the halfway house to see if this applies.
