[ARCHIVED] Media Tour Scheduled for Napa County Re-Entry Facility

NAPA — Napa County has scheduled a tour for media interested in visiting Napa County’s Re-Entry Facility on Friday, February 1, 2019 at 2:00 PM. The tour will be followed by the official ribbon cutting ceremony. Congressman Mike Thompson, Senator Bill Dodd, and Assembly Member Aguiar-Curry are expected to join the Board of Supervisors at the ribbon cutting ceremony.

The County of Napa Re-entry Facility is a 72-bed (1 female, 3 male dorms) secure facility that will provide an environment that fosters cognitive behavioral change and allow individuals to build a foundation for transition from a confinement setting back into the community. The facility is the first program of its kind in California to be jointly operated with Probation and Correctional Officers working side-by-side. The program is designed to offer residents the opportunity to leave the facility based upon individualized plans to meet the participant’s employment, educational and social program needs.

The project was made possible as a result of Senate Bill 1022, which provided the County $13.4 million through a lease revenue bond. The County provided an additional $10 million to complete the facility. The total project cost $23.4 million.

Media interested in attending the tour and/or ribbon-cutting ceremony should contact Molly Rattigan at [email protected] by Wednesday, January 30th.
