  • What is a halfway house?

    Halfway houses are community-based residential facilities for offenders who have been allowed to serve part of their sentence under supervision in the community.

  • Do halfway houses help people with substance use disorders?

  • What does a halfway house cost?

    Halfway houses in Canada are entirely funded by tax dollars. Generally, it is more cost-effective to house offenders in halfway houses than correctional institutes.
