Montana Department of Corrections: Department of corrections reentry program forthe state of Montana.

Helena Prerelease Center – A 105-bed facility serving adult men who must be a resident of Montana. Our facility is designed to ease the transition of an offender from a correctional institution to living independently in the community. It is also a comprehensive, community-based correctional program serving the adult male offenders referred by Montana Department of Corrections.

Gallatin County Reentry Program – Located on property owned by Gallatin County, this facility was designed, financed and constructed by Community, Counseling, and Correctional Services, Inc. (CCCS), and will be transferred to Gallatin County at the end of 10 years. It began providing services in mid-December 2005. It is a multiple use facility (including pre-release, work-release, drug court sanction, detention, and re-entry) for adult male offenders. This facility has a 40-bed capacity to accommodate 30 male offenders from the Montana Department of Corrections and 10 Gallatin County male offenders.  It has 16.5 employees, with an estimated annual Payroll and Benefits of $400,000, and an estimated annual Purchases of Good and Services of $313,000.

Montana DOC Re-Entry Initiative – The ultimate goal of Montana’s reentry initiative is to reduce the rate at which offenders return to prison, because that will result in a safer Montana, fewer victims and lower cost to Montana taxpayers. Reduced demand for Corrections funding will mean more money available for other government services such as education.

Montana Women’s Prison And Passages (Pre-Release) – Montana Women’s Prison in Billings’ houses approximately 265 adult female offenders and has partial responsibility for 245 more. More than 90 percent of inmates at MWP are involved in educational or vocational programs and nearly all participate in a parenting program, staffed by volunteers, where they learn prenatal skills, infant care, adolescent behavior and more.

Carmel Redevelopment Corp.
