Adult Programs: Community-Based Programs

Customized Services for Our Clients and Funders

Community Solutions, Inc. (CSI) provides a variety of services in community-based settings to assist in reintroducing offenders to their communities, family systems, and other social supports in a thoughtful manner aimed at reducing recidivism. The various community-based programs CSI offers include:

Cognitive Behavioral Treatment

Through a contract with Rhode Island Department of Corrections, CSI provides community-based multifaceted intervention services. These address anti-social attitudes, values, beliefs, thinking and/or other criminal cognitions geared toward the specific risks and needs of offenders on Probation and Parole. The program uses cognitive behavioral treatment with Motivational Interviewing techniques and a curricula-driven model designed to assess the needs of each client to reduce individual risk factors.

Community Court

In Waterbury, CT, offenders charged with misdemeanors are assigned to perform one to three days of community service in lieu of fines or jail time. Participants clean up parks, vacant lots and schools, or serve meals and clean soup kitchens and homeless shelters. Community Court staff meets with the city and neighborhood associations to match projects with local needs.
