Halfway House

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.

Admission is only by DOC referral. For more information call (203) 236-9990 or email Info [at] NewOpportunitiesInc [dot] org.
