Residential Services Opens!

The Allen County Community Corrections Residential Services Program, located on 7117 Venture Lane, opened on August 25, 2020. The program serves as an alternative to incarceration for individuals ordered by the Allen Circuit or Superior Courts, as a sanction or alternative to revocation and incarceration.

Placements may also be used by ACCC as a last stop prior to ordering the participant to the Indiana Department of Correction. Individuals returning to the Allen County Community through the Community Transitions Program (CTP) may also be placed at the residential facility when individuals do not have suitable housing options. Program participants are subject to 24 hour a day supervision through residential placement, which may include GPS supervision while in the community, individualized case plans guided by the Mark Carey Guides/BITS, individual in-house cognitive behavioral therapy interventions and a schedule of targeted rehabilitative services assigned based upon the results of the IRAS Risk/Needs Assessment as well as a myriad of other internal assessments and any other special conditions of placement that have been ordered by the Court.

A small group of voluntary Advisory Board members and local judiciary assembled as a formal work group to assist in the development of policies and procedures to guide this new level of programming and supervision. This group consists of the Honorable Frances Gull, Allen Superior Court, the Honorable David Zent, Allen Superior Court, the Honorable Wendy Davis, Allen Superior Court, William Lebrato, Chief Public Defender, Michael McAlexander, Allen County Prosecutor’s Chief Deputy, and Charles Clark, President, Parkview Behavioral Health Institute. Please direct any inquiries or questions about this program to ACCC Executive Director, Kim Churchward.
