Since its origin as a halfway house for men in 1971, PACT’s Bradley Center in LaPorte County has grown to provide residential/work release programs for thousands of men and women. Today, PACT’s Bradley Center provides services for:
- Institutional Transfers: who serve the final portion of their sentences with PACT supervision
- United States’s Probation Placements:who are sent to PACT for programming due to modifications in their supervised release, and
- Pretrial Placements: who are referred to PACT as a condition of their bond.
Clients of Bradley Center follow a curriculum designed around important life skills. They participate in programs designed to teach financial management, nutrition, parenting, family reunification and marriage, employment skills, volunteerism, overcoming substance abuse, environmental awareness, cultural diversity, and spiritual growth.
Bradley Center clients are particularly engaged in programming that helps them identify and change their negative thoughts, attitudes, and behaviors. With the help of the Bradley staff, they learn skills for anger management, conflict resolution, goal setting, job readiness, problem solving, and time and stress management. They can take advantage of continuing education classes and work toward their diploma or degree. They also have access to gender specific programs for domestic violence and sexual abuse.
