Community Corrections


A pioneer in Correctional Services for 118 years, Volunteers of America has championed the humane treatment of prisoners and provided services to help offenders successfully transition from prison to productive life in the community. Backed by its previous legacy of services, Volunteers of America's correctional professionals of today continue to develop innovative evidence based service models to serve the disconnected and socially disadvantaged persons re-entering society after periods of incarceration. Our unique partnerships within local communities represents one of the nation’s best opportunities to engage citizens in the process of offering acceptance, service and guidance to formerly incarcerated citizens. These efforts not only provide life-changing benefits for the formerly incarcerated but also make a direct impact on the health and vitality of the local community.

"I think they are accomplishing things I don't believe they would have accomplished had I continued down my path of drug and alcohol abuse. It wasn't until I came to live [at a Volunteers of America, Dakotas halfway house] that my attitude and thinking began to change."
