Q&A: Are halfway houses considered transitional housing? Can we help people living in halfway houses?

Halfway houses that are contracted through the CT Department of Corrections are not considered transitional housing.  Sober living facilities (also called halfway houses), licensed as rooming/boarding or leased as apartments are also not transitional housing. 

Halfway houses are a level 1 correctional facility so residents are under DOC supervision and therefore still considered an institution. If they have been at the halfway house or incarcerated for 180 days or more, they can be served through prevention, more specifically prevention with relocation.
