My husband has been there for 2 months already. As long as they follow the rules they won't have any problems. My husband says he feels like he's "free"; not the same as if he was home but definitely not like being in prison. He works so he spends most of the day out of the center. He should be getting his furlough in the next couple of weeks so we are looking forward to that. But even during visitation we have our own space. The CO's are not constantly harrasing u or looking to see if u accidentally touched he's knee or if u sat too close together LOL And the part that he loves the most is the home cooked meals!!!! Finally eating real food and sometimes even junk food LOL we talk all date/night when he's not busy at home and it feels great to just be able to grab the phone and talk to him when I need to instead of hacina to wait for him to call/have $ on the phone or even squeeze everything into the 15 mins that we used to get. So excited that he's almost home!!!!

Does anyone have any updated information on the st petersburg wrc> I've been trying to find a work release center close to port charlotte and this is the closest I could find. They don't make it easy for families to find information on them. Thank you

Smile was at St Pete WRC this past weekend


A family member was transferred here last week. We had waited 8 months, and they came & woke him up at 3 am to pack up for transport. They wouldn't even tell him where he was going! Happily, he ended up at St.Pete WRC. A few hours after he arrived, after orientation, he called me from a roommates cell phone. (2 other roommates with him) He had a big list of what I needed to bring to him, including his own cell phone (NO SMART PHONES ALLOWED). He is still in shock, as it is a completely different lifestyle than he was accustomed. Settling in does take time, but happily, he has his own cell phone, so he can call whenever he wants. The things that need to be provided are basic. Clothes, underwear, t-shirts, dress shirts, pants (both work & interview) socks, shoes, bed linens, towels, personal items like soap, shampoo, razors, toothbrush & toothpaste. If you are waiting for a transfer like this, then start saving your money. It is a one time luxury! However, it is expensive! The cell phone should be set up already, monthly payments require a credit card.
He is working in the center until his 90 days are up, then he is allowed to find outside employment. I don't know all the details, he just arrived. The nice thing was that we got visitation on the weekend. The process is just like State facilities, but you can bring food! So happy! He finally got a good meal, and we got to enjoy with him! There is a limit what you can bring for example, you can go to McDonald's and buy a combo meal, or any type of meal from a restaurant. You can also bring food in Tupperware containers. They are vigilant about checking the food out for obvious reasons. The place seems really nice, the people are decent human beings, and they did everything they could to assist us. I have no complaints. I am just so happy to have him close to home, and now he can start the process of joining the real world again. This place has 1 simple rule, FOLLOW THE RULES OR LEAVE! I like that!

The cell phones that they can have at work release, can they be a pre-paid phone like straight talk or does it have to be a contract phone?

You might want to call about that one. I'm not sure.

Does anyone have a loved one at St. Pete work release center now? I'm hearing some different stories about what they can/can't have with them. I just want to get the right things before he gets there.

I'd call the Work release center. The only constant is change and it changes daily.
