Dallas Transitional Center

The Dallas Transitional Center is a 225-bed halfway house. The Dallas Transitional Center contracts with the Texas Department of Criminal Justice to provide halfway house residents case management, employment placement and reintegration services, 3 meals per day, and transportation to treatment programs, jobs and medical appointments. We are in the process of relocating and constructing a new halfway house location in Dallas County to provide more halfway house program beds to the State of Texas and other agencies.
