Community Based Residential Facilities

Facilities that provide a bridge between correctional institutions and the community for offenders, working on a system of gradual, supervised release. Programming for residents may include life skills, substance use disorder counselling, employment preparation and crisis counselling. Formerly known as halfway houses, CBRFs include facilities operated by the federal government, non-governmental agencies, hostels, private home placements (PHPs), Alternative Community Beds (ACBs), and supervised apartments.
