Default Questions about HH, jobs, counseling-for women inmates

How to I post to forums here?

FCI-hazleton can women get jobs? DO they get counseling?

When it comes time for a halfway house, how is it determined WHERE they go?

Every federal inmate is required to get a job, but there are always more prisoners than there are jobs. One of mine was to pick up trash for one hour on Sundays.

Your unit team will decide how much, if any, half way house time you will receive. If you accept it, you will be sent to a HWH that is close to your release location. Initially that is the federal judicial district where you were sentenced. If you want to be released somewhere else, you need to submit a "change of release location" to your case manager about 6 months before your HWH date (not your end of sentence release date). It will be sent to the receiving US Probation Office for approval, so the more valid reasons you have, the better your chances for acceptance. If approved, you will go to a HWH there. Here is a link to the 10 page list of current bop HWH contracts.
