Program Summary:

Make a difference for offenders and the Boulder County community.

3-year term, about 20 hours per month including meetings and reading case materials. 7:30-9:30am meetings on second and fourth Tuesdays of each month. Must be at least 18, Boulder County resident, and able to read case materials and make recommendations for the bench on offender placement in halfway houses as alternatives to incarceration. Background checks are required, and prior interaction with the justice system will not necessarily disqualify anyone from applying. Lived experience can be valuable. All applicants are reviewed on their merits and qualifications.

The Community Corrections Board has the authority to deny anyone for placement they determine to be a public safety risk. If the board denies funding, a judge does not have the option to use the halfway house as a sentencing option. The program also has the right to refuse any individual they determine will be a risk to the public or their program.
