Depending on your sentence and the time your case manager thinks you'll need for reentry, halfway house time can be as little as a month or two to as much as one full year.

Typically he can receive visits on the very first visitation date/time. The visits are very chill, you can bring food for him to eat there and to take to his dorm room along with clothing (not more prison garb). There is hardly any supervision as the idea of being free usually supersedes any notion of screwing up at this point... you're almost home.Read more
Home incarceration is one step removed from the halfway house. Offenders on home confinement wear a monitoring device usually on their ankle (i wore mine on my wrist, it looked like a watch and no one knew the difference) which is a conversation-starter for sure. The home confinement recipient must have a job and an approved residence with a verified landline telephone. Here is a typical day You wake up at least once in the middle ofRead more

RRM visitation is very chill. There are no gates, no locks no cells. You will get to hug him, bring him food and clothing. You should call once before you go to make sure of their "local rules." Some places are run by Salvation Army and have a really nice set up with full kitchens and great menus for the offenders preparing for their release.Read more
Work release is different than the halfway house. Work release is when you live in the prison but take a bus (Mon - Fri) to a remote location where they work with civilians. When their work day is over, they return to the minimum security camp and sleep. The halfway house means "halfway between in prison and being released from prison." The halfway house is when the inmate is released into the community, they will live in the halfway houseRead more
That might make a compelling argument for early release from halfway house - or at least home confinement. What we would advise, is to have your inmate get a stipulation from their counselor on a "what if I pay my restitution (by borrowing from a relative, will this get me to the door any sooner". You want to know that it will have some bearing before you pay it.Read more
