Who we are

Partners in community integration

The Atlantic Halfway House Association (AHHA) was founded in 2006. This establishment was in an effort to regroup, assist and represent the interests of Community Residential Facilities (CRFs) operating on behalf of the Correctional Service of Canada (CSC) within the Atlantic Region.

The AHHA membership is comprised of individual halfway house organizations and treatment facilities proudly serving communities in Newfoundland and Labrador, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island.

As an organization AHHA primarily, facilitates networking amongst our members to help them provide specialized residential programming and supervision that support the successful re-integration of federally sentenced offenders.

Our Guiding Principles:

  • Sharing information: We assist AHHA members in sharing industry standards and organizational best practices in an effort to constantly refine the delivery of optimum Halfway House programming and supervision.
  • Providing a Platform: We provide AHHA members the ability to communicate daily by utilizing an innovative interactive web based appl. This platform allows the members to stay informed of ever changing standard of care by creating discussion, adding/reviewing resources and sharing valuable knowledge.
  • Bridging the Gap: We provide the means for AHHA members to create small or large focus groups without being impeded by physical distance and travel challenges. This will allow us to bridge the gaps and revolutionize the standard of community correction and be a globally respected group of service providers.
  • Community Consciousness: We provide the means for other service providers to utilize a close reciprocal relationship with AHHA members and support our goals to engage the community at large in becoming cognizant of the positive impact community re-integration has on society.
