Bishop House for Men
Bishop House, administered by New Opportunities Inc. in conjunction with the Connecticut Department of Correction (DOC), is a 48 bed halfway house that serves Greater Waterbury. The all-male residents there participate in a work-release program.
Potential residents of the program are referred by the DOC Community Services Division. These referrals must meet the eligibility criteria for community release as established by the DOC. The average length of stay at Bishop House is within six to eight months of discharge from sentence or release to Parole or Transitional Supervision.
The Program emphasizes work release. All participants must be able to work and pay weekly room and board. As required, contributions are also made to the State’s Victim’s Compensation Fund. In-house substance abuse monitoring is conducted routinely.
The Bishop House program of New Opportunities, Inc. shall maintain a zero tolerance toward all forms of sexual/assault/harassment. Any person who becomes aware of or suspects sexual assault/abuse or sexual harassment must report it immediately to the Program Manager or an higher authority. Any incident determined to be a criminal matter will be reported to law enforcement
Admission is only by DOC referral. For more information call (203) 236-9990 or email Info [at] NewOppInc [dot] org.
