Parole and Probation: Parole and Probation Services

Community Programs


The North Dakota Department of Corrections & Rehabilitation-Division of Field Services contracts with private providers for halfway house services. Halfway houses are utilized in two ways. One is to provide transition from incarceration to the community. The other is used as an intermediate sanction to avoid revocation. In either case the halfway house provides a structured living environment. The halfway houses provide services such as aid in job seeking, referrals to assistance agencies such as Vocational Rehabilitation and housing, chemical treatment, living skills, and cognitive restructuring. They also provide on-site alcohol and drug testing. The provider works closely with the offender providing case management services. These services are coordinated with the probation officer through regular staffing.

While at the halfway house offenders are required to pay for a part of the daily fee. This requirement teaches the offender to take responsibility for their daily living needs while offsetting the cost to the taxpayer.

Typically, a resident is required to remain at the halfway house 45-60 days. Their discharge will be based upon their readiness to move out on their own and their behavior while at the halfway house.

The goal of the halfway house placement is to return the offender to the community with the support needed to help increase the success of the offender upon their discharge.
