Our Mission

To assist individuals in the criminal justice system to achieve their highest level of personal development safely in the community.

Our Story

Since 1974, Community Corrections Association (CCA) has been committed to making people the best version of themselves. We offer an effective alternative to the traditional corrections system while reducing costs to taxpayers, lowering re-arrest rates and helping people become productive members of the community.

In addition, our residents perform thousands of community service hours every year. This allows them to take pride in making a difference while benefitting the community as well.

Our success has made us the only program in the country to maintain accreditation by the American Correctional Association for more than 40 years.

Through the talent of our staff, the passion of our board of directors, and the support of our community, we will continue to grow and improve for the benefit of our clients and their families.
