The Casa Grande Transitional Housing center has been operating since December 2005. The dormitory-style facility was built to house non-violent, non-sex crime inmates who are within 18 months of their parole eligibility date. The main purpose of Casa Grande was, and still is, to allow these “residents” the opportunity to seek work and secure permanent housing prior to reintegrating into society. Since its inception, Casa Grande has expanded its programs to include parolees, probation violators, and ex-offenders.
The Casa Grande Transitional Housing center is operated with 27 staff members:
- 1 Correctional Manager (Custody Lieutenant)
- 2 Senior Correctional Officers
- 19 Correctional Officers
- 1 Correctional Caseworker III
- 2 Correctional Caseworkers II
- 1 Accountant Technician I
- 1 Facility Supervisor III (Maintenance)
CGTH is a 400-bed facility housing both male and female inmates.
