The state provides funds to the 20th Judicial District (Boulder County) for halfway houses to provide services to individuals 18 years and older with at least one felony charge. Halfway houses provide services for individuals convicted of less severe offenses who are diverted from prison and for those who are in transition between prison and parole. The goal is to successfully reintegrate these individuals back into society. They are required to work and pay for their room and board, participate in counseling as needed, drug and alcohol testing, cognitive behavioral and life skills training, and pay restitution and child support, etc.
Contracted Residential Services
Boulder County has entered into contracts with two private vendors who provide residential community corrections services. CoreCivic operates the Longmont Community Treatment Center (LCTC) and ICCS operates ICCS-Boulder (formerly known as BCTC). The halfway houses are staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The programs run by the vendors provide monitoring of client whereabouts, random house counts and room searches for purposes of security and containment. Violation of program and supervision requirements can result in a prison sentence or a return to prison.
