The Orlando Bridge CRC

Program Description

The Orlando Bridge Community Release Center gives male inmates an opportunity to get their lives back on track. In the Community Release program inmates are gainfully employed during the day and work on substance abuse treatment, education and vocation coursework 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.
