Community Re-Entry

Residential Re-Entry Center (RRC)

Heartland Center helps adults under the custody of the Bureau of Prisons (BOP) transition back to their communities. The Heartland Center Residential Re-Entry program provides a structured, residential, supervised environment for inmates nearing release. Services include employment counseling, job placement, financial management assistance and other help that makes a successful community adjustment possible.

An important component of the RRC program is transitional drug abuse treatment (TDAT) for those who have completed  residential drug abuse program (RDAP) while confined in a BOP institution. Referred by the Federal Bureau of Prisons, individuals residing at the Heartland Center RRC or who are supervised under home confinement can receive substance abuse treatment, mental health, and psychiatric services through this program.


Community Transitions Unit (CTU)

Our Community Transitions Unit (CTU) is a 24-hour residential program that helps facilitate the community reintegration of adults under the custody of the Missouri Department of Corrections. Our program offers specialized assistance to help individuals obtain employment, housing, treatment, and other services for a successful return to the community. It is funded by the Missouri Department of Corrections.

Heartland Center supports the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA), a law mandating that each agency adopt a “Zero Tolerance” policy for all forms of offender sexual abuse and harassment.  Prevention of offender sexual and harassment is a top priority. Learn more.
