Providing Tools for Success
The Volunteers of America Chesapeake Residential Re-Entry Center received accreditation from the American Correctional Association in August 2011 under the Performance-Based standards for Adult Community Residential Services. The intensive case management and supportive services provided by RRC led to over 300 ex offenders successfully completing the program and obtaining employment in 2011.
Because of these successes, referrals from the Bureau of Prisons as well as the Federal Probation Department have increased. To meet these new needs The Residential Re-Entry Center will be moving into a new facility.
This move will increase the number of residents RRC can house from 106 to 150 as well as provide access to more group meeting space, increased transitional and educational programming and an updated computer lab and library. The Residential Re-Entry Center’s expansion to a new facility will also allow the program to serve more women transitioning out of federal institutions.
