Oh my....that's a brand new, just opened re-entry facility According to the article below (written February 24, 2017), it is just now opening...your loved one must be one of the first inmates approved for the program

Warden Tony Williams will oversee the center and believes it can play a powerful role in reducing the number of repeat offenders.

“We’ll be focusing on things you or I take for granted like being able to budget, utilize technology – things they may not have necessarily been exposed to due to their incarceration,” Williams said.

The article also states that there will be 2 more opening in the near future:

The state is looking to open another Life Skills Reentry Center for males in Murphysboro and one for female inmates at Logan Correctional Center.
Read the entire article HERE.

According to THIS article:

The facility will offer educational courses as well as job readiness and therapy classes to offenders who have one to four years left on their sentence.
They will also learn skills to help them re-enter society, like how to manage a bank account, use the latest technology and schedule medical appointments.
Please update this thread with any information you learn about this re-entry center (visits, phones, atmosphere etc). Thanks!!
