Default Halfway House Closing

My friendis scheduled to leave Alderson Federal Prison Camp next Tues, May 21 and was told she would be heading to a halfway house in Winston Salem, NC. She has served 4 1/2 years. Today she was told by her counselor that the hh in Winston Salem is not renewing their contract with the federal govt and because they are having to relocate all residents already there, that all the beds are full and she will have to stay in FBOP custody until her full time date in Nov.

She lives in the Piedmont/Triad area of NC. Surely another bed will open before Nov?? Is there any recommendations that anyone can offer?

Im sure Alderson would love to keep billing FBOP until November instead of allowing her to go to hh and trying to re establish her life.

Any thoughts? I cant imagine how disheartened she is.

It will be up to her case manager. They may be able to place her at another HWH, but if not, she will stay where she is. By the way, there have been a number of PTO posts from folks who wished they had remained at their bop minimum security camp instead of accepting half way house. I went from FCI medium security and can still understand their thinking, HWHs are a PITA.

The bop can also send inmates directly to home confinement for up to 6 months at the end of their sentences, so be sure she asks for that. Most HC is from a HWH (supervised by the HWH staff) but direct placement in home confinement is monitored by US Probation officers.
