The Corrections Corporation of America (CCA) announced they were contracted by the CDCR to provide re-entry services for 120 men at the Boston Avenue facility in San Diego, reports Globe Newswire.
The Male Community Re-entry Programs are designed to provide a wide range of services, including substance abuse, medical and mental health care, education, employment and family reunification to help inmates transition back into society.
CCA was also awarded a contract by the Federal Bureau of Prisons in Ocean View and plans to consolidate both resident populations into a 483-bed facility in Ocean View.
“We continue to focus our efforts on delivering innovative and cost-effective solutions…and are excited to expand our partnership with the state of California,” said Damon Hininger, CCA’s president and CEO.
CCA owns or operates 85 prisons and re-entry facilities that house approximately 89,000 inmates or parolees in 20 states and the District of Columbia.
