I'm concerned about the voa. What kind of a reentery program runs the way this one does? Co ed.. sure they keep them apart but over half the male inmates are sleeping with female inmates. Scheduling passes at the same time to meet up and so on. Not to metion a couple of the staff members are sleeping with inmates as well. Also the rules are so strict when it comes to things like what type of candy the can have but not the fact that they have sex offenders roaming the streets. I've very disappointed in the way this facility is ran. Sickened me!

Yes that may be true but there are some good intentions about the place I do not believe in the rules or the people running it but it do help some folks get back into normal life span an yes they do rob the people that's in there but overall they need to do a lot of work within the system structure because it is felling those people that are there now as far as staff as well as coeds sleeping together they have to put a better system an place to prevent it its not perfect but its a step to bring our love ones closer

Who cares who is having sex? The point of the place is to reintegrate people back into society so that hopefully they don't reoffend. Are you surprised people want to have sex after being in prison for years?? Grow up. It's a good place ran by good people. Get a life and stop knocking people and places that are trying to do a good thing.

Trying to good in some aspects yes but no staff having sex with residents is not good running of any business. Of course ppl who get out of prison want sex they should give them personal passe. Last week a staff member was turned in for having sexual incounters with a resident there. Another resident filed complaints against that staff member and ended up in country jail. I do believe that the idea of the half way house is a great idea but did u know that 2 ppl this past year either ended up dieing or in prison for murder do to domestic battery and the VOA still doesn't have any kind of anger management classes?! Where you aware that daily inmates are written up for things that aren't even in the rule book.? Or the fact that they house Child Molesters!? So everytime a wife takes her kids to see daddy they have to worry about that.BTW not EVERYONE in the VOA is straight out of prison some are parole violations, pre trial confinement... some of those ppl have never seen prison. I'm not bitching at the fact they have sex but NO reentry program should be coed. And staff (ANYWHERE ) shouldnt sleep with inmates and punish people for no reason! And who cares I do I'm closely tied to the VOA thank god I haven't had to deal with this but I've witnessed it.

You have people who are trying to re-enter different communities. Most residents follow the rules. The ones that do not follow the rules will eventually be back in prison at some point. This is the real world, people will act and do things as they please. It is up to the residents to abide by the rules no matter how trivial they might seem. The real world has rules and they better get ready to follow them. They now longer will be coddled and get privileges they think they deserve. Get with the program or go back to prison. You cannot prevent people from having sex with each other. This is human nature. If there are staff having sex with inmates they need to be fired. Learn proper grammar before you try to respond to any topic.

Tonight the VOA went against the federal guidelines ( must serve 2 HOT meals a day) and served cold sandwiches for lunch and dinner. Federal inmates are different then state inmates and the guidelines for their rights differ from state. Its the responsibility of the VOA to follow those rules just as much as its the inmates responsibility to follow the VOA rules!

If they have to follow federal guidelines then are they federally funded as well? If they are really this poorly managed then they should be reported to the appropriate authorities. Make a call.

Absolutely our tax dollars are supporting it. It is like any other government ran or supported program; screwed up.

All those women in there do is gossip and start trouble. You did the crime so do the time One lady in there is always talking dogging out people.reform yourself tha'ts the reason you're in there. Foucus on your own business instead of worrying about whose getting laid.The VOA is not a hotel maybe next time people will make better choices and not break the law.

I believe the voa is funded by the united way, not sure if that matters on the laws. I know they house pre trial federal sexual criminals who have committed crimes against children AND the churches bring children there to trick or treat on Halloween. I was shocked by that.
