Garrett House


The needs of women returning to the community from the criminal justice system are distinct from those of men. Volunteers of America Delaware Valley’s Garrett House program accounts for these differences, and employs gender-responsive treatment interventions designed explicitly for females pending release from prison. Garrett House, a 48-bed residential community release program located in Camden, is one of three programs which provide residential reentry services to women in the state of New Jersey. Accredited by the American Correctional Association and contracted by the New Jersey Department of Corrections, Garrett House serves women who are within 24 months of parole eligibility.

Residents of Garrett House are provided with:

  • 24-hour Staff Support
  • Individualized Case Management and Discharge Planning
  • Job Coaching, Job Readiness and Employment Support
  • Cognitive Skills Training and Trauma-Informed Treatment
  • Substance Abuse Treatment and Relapse Prevention
  • Emotions Management

Between 2015 and 2018, nearly 250 women have been admitted to Garrett House, and more than 80% have been successfully released.
