The Community Corrections Division CWR in Talladega County is privately owned and contracted by government lease and consists of six community-based programs that supervise both pre-sentenced and sentenced offenders, prioritizing public safety and cost-effective alternatives to incarceration. Working in collaboration with the Work Release Center located at 13501 Plant Rd Alabama, AL, and other criminal justice agencies, the division oversees thousands of offenders in the community.

The Childersburg Community Based Facility and Community Work Center is a state prison facility operated by the Alabama Department of Corrections (ADOC). This facility offers a range of programs aimed at education, drug treatment, and re-entry, all of which operate concurrently with the Community Work and Work Release Programs. Childersburg Work Center is classified as a minimum security institution, emphasizing a focus on rehabilitation and reintegration into society.

Inmates here may be assigned to work for various government agencies, providing them with opportunities for paid employment. Additionally, inmates engage in work on the property, including participation in a small farm project. Notably, the farm project produces fresh produce, significantly reducing the facility's need to outsource produce during peak harvest seasons.

The Work Release Program at Childersburg allows selected inmates to work for private employers in the community, where they are paid the prevailing wage. Those not employed participate in work on the property or attend work training classes through the Work Keys Program, administered by the Central Alabama Community College.

Participation in the Work Release Program involves various financial obligations for the inmates. A percentage of their gross salary is deducted to cover the costs associated with their participation, including contributions towards program maintenance, transportation fees, medical co-pays, drug testing fees, and laundry services. Additionally, state and federal income taxes and Social Security taxes are deducted from their wages.

Upon arrival at the work release facility, inmates are initially assigned to work within it. However, their participation in community employment is contingent upon approval and placement in a paying job. It's important to note that any public protests received regarding an inmate's participation in the Work Release Program may lead to reconsideration by the ADOC, potentially resulting in the inmate being returned to a more restrictive facility or being denied the opportunity to work in the community.

In conclusion, the Childersburg Community Based Facility provide inmates with opportunities for education, employment, and spiritual growth, all aimed at facilitating their successful reintegration into society upon release. Through its various programs and initiatives, the facility strives to empower inmates to lead productive and fulfilling lives.
