Default Filled Up?

Are the half way houses filled up? I heard once you make parole and are told you have to go to a half way house that it could be up to another year in prison before you can get into a half way house due to them being filled up? Anyone know the truth of this?

Question Transitional Control

My husband was just approved TC for October. He doesn't know yet which halfway house they'll be releasing him to. How do they make that decision? Is it based on availability, geographical location or both? He's currently in London. We live in Dayton. Though there are a number of programs in Dayton, he seems to think based on what fellow inmates are telling him that he'll be sent to Cincinnati. Is that likely?

My son has been in VOA in Cincinnati for almost 2 months. That place is nasty and over run with heroin, meth and any other drug.He has took urine test and is clean.He can't get counseling he needs. They never have classes like they are supposed to. He can't get outside time or a job because of this. He got racial/gang tattoos while incarcerated and they mean nothing to him as we will be getting them covered. He has been harassed by workers in there telling him if he didn't like something she showed him the back door to leave another has been threatening him. I have spoke to his Parole Officer about this and contacted the Head VOA in Virginia. Does anyone know who else I can contact or where I can get help. Thank you

Not sure if all are same but my son could take cell phone with no camera or internet service and was allowed to make calls any time. Visits were in a few weeks. In understanding no camera or internet Now where my son is would because the place is disgusting, a homeless shelter for drug addicts.

ODRC is who funds them, chillicothe locks them down all week, takes them to walmart once a week. less freedom than in prison. it's a joke at some places. It's all about the money for them.
