New Castle, DE Hazel D. Plant Women's Treatment Facility View
This facility opened October 2005; the first all female facility of its kind in the State. It offers the Crest program to provide women with a comprehensive substance treatment, with work release as a component. The Center employs a corps of classified offenders, at an established wage structure, as workers for the facility. They provide support to DOC staff in the areas of food service, telephone operations, ground keeping, housekeeping/janitorial and laundry service for offenders. The facility is dedicated to the successful re-entry of offenders into the community. It is operated in such a way as to achieve an equal balance of control and treatment for offenders that can positively impact their behavior and lifestyle patterns upon release.
