Halfway houses are designed to allow certain inmates the opportunity to learn valuable skills and earn their way back into society, with a fighting chance at staying out of trouble. But halfway houses are hard to run, and after an inmate left a local property and later died, the Department of Corrections has decided to close a downtown halfway house. A house operated by Catalyst Behavioral Services was shut down recently, and the inmates were moved to another location to finish out their term. Concerns over management of the house and the inmate’s death were the motivating factors in the decision to close the facility.
