The inmates housed at Bradenton CRC located at 2104 63rd Ave in Bradenton, FL are placed according to their custody level (determined by a number of factors including the past criminal history and the length of their sentence). There are ample educational and vocational training programs for all inmates, especially ones that show a willingness to learn new things that will prepare them for a better life when they are released. The mission is to promote and prepare the offender to leave in better shape than when they arrived, giving them the best chance to never come back and thus lower the state's recidivism rate.

The Cocoa Bridge Community Release Center has program beds for 84 female transitions and 36 female community release under the direction of Angela Mitchell

Program Description

Comprised of a Transition Re-Entry Center and Community Release Center, The Bradenton Bridge gives female inmates an opportunity to get their lives back on track. The Transition Re-Entry Center is a Therapeutic Community that provides intensive substance abuse treatment and value-added services to women with a remaining sentence of 24 to 36 months. The foundation of the program is the Therapeutic Community Concepts, which are essential to maintaining a drug-free lifestyle in social contexts. With clinical supervision, this peer-led, peer-driven environment encourages women to become active participants in their recovery. Each program participant follows a multidisciplinary treatment plan customized to meet her individual needs.

Upon completion of the Transition Re-Entry Program, inmates become eligible for the Community Release program, where they are gainfully employed during the day and continue their treatment at night. Community Release inmates are required to pay subsistence for room and board which saves taxpayers money. Inmates also make court-ordered payments, send money home for family support and are required to set money aside for savings upon their release.

Our substance abuse treatment, diverse courses and value-added services teach problem solving, critical thinking, conflict resolution and recovery maintenance skills. The program offerings at each facility vary to best meet the needs of the persons served.
