Probation and Restitution Centers (PRCs) are community-based residential programs for selected offenders under Department supervision and 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, 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, other such services to promote personal responsibility, self-improvement, and public safety.
