WORKING TOGETHER FOR SAFER COMMUNITIES
The Prairie Region Halfway House Association (PRHHA) is a non-profit society dedicated to providing information, education, leadership and advocacy for its member organizations all of which provide residential service facilities and programs for federal offenders in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Northwestern Ontario and the N.W.T. The members of our association work together to ensure the successful and peaceful transition of offenders into the community.
A COLLABORATIVE PROCESS
PRHHA members work closely with Correctional Services of Canada as well as with local community groups and agencies to provide effective reintegration programs that increase the safety of all communities in the prairie region.
EFFECTIVE TREATMENT AND SUPPORT PROGRAMS
The successful rehabilitation of offenders requires the use of various tools and resources. A variety of mental and physical health support programs and addiction services are offered to address the challenges and issues faced by offenders. Spiritual and guidance programs are also available.
Studies have demonstrated that halfway houses provide an important bridge between institutional care and the community. Gradual, appropriately supervised reintegration combined with the necessary treatment plans reduces recidivisism thereby increasing the safety of all Canadians.
SKILLS AND REHABILITATION
Our residential facilities equip offenders with the skills and knowledge they need to become law-abiding members of the community. Our organizations offer life skills and our aim is to create a stable and effective network of community supports that consider the unique challenges faced by offenders.
