Probation and Restitution Centers (PRCs)are community-based residential programs for selected offenders under Department supervision and for recently released inmates. The program consists of a four (4) to six (6) month Residential Program Phase (Phase I) followed by a three (3) to six (6) month extended Support and Follow-up Services Phase (Phase II) during which participants reside within the community. The PRC offers a sentencing alternative to the courts while providing a resource for participants who experience difficulty meeting their court-imposed financial obligations to victims, the courts, and the Department. Additionally, PRCs provide transitional assistance to newly-released inmates during their re-entry into the community. The program provides a continuum of services that offer at a minimum employability skills, job placement, budgeting skills development and assistance, vocational and educational training through linkages to community-based employers and providers, substance abuse services, transitional housing, support services to facilitate successful participation in the community, and other such services to promote personal responsibility, self improvement and public safety.
