Work Release Information
The Community Corrections operates two work release programs:
- The Corrections Center, an 80-bed coed facility
- The Women’s Center, a 34-bed facility
Both facilities are located in Milwaukie, Oregon. Both work release facilities provide services to eligible sentenced adult offenders.
The Corrections Center also houses a residential drug and alcohol treatment program for male offenders who are supervised by Community Corrections.
The Women's Center operates residential beds for the women’s drug and alcohol treatment program.
While at the facility, offenders may pay a portion of the cost of their work release services. These services include extensive job search groups, cognitive groups, individual and group correctional counseling, access to outpatient evaluation and treatment, and residential alcohol and drug treatment.
Most offenders must work while at the facilites. They are allowed restricted visiting with their families and friends. Payment of financial restitution, facility maintenance fees, and court-ordered fines and fees are the financial priority for each offender’s budget.
Both facilites operate 24 hours per day. Staff include certified community corrections officers, corrections counselors, cooking and maintenance staff, and administrative staff. These employees work together to provide a safe and secure environment, designed to offer offenders the necessary tools to obtain an organized and successful transition back into their community.

Is there a dress code for visitors?
Because work release houses people with a variety of different issues, work release staff will deny visitors who are wearing sexually suggestive or inappropriate clothing. Staff will consider clothing as being sexually suggestive for the facility setting if it exposes flesh on the chest, back, upper thigh, or midsection. This includes short shorts, skirts, and dresses; dresses or skirts with high slits; tank tops, halter or tube tops, or other clothing with plunging or low-cut necklines. Visitors will be denied access to either facility if they wear tight-fitting or see-through clothing or sheer and loose-weave fabrics. Staff will consider the absence of undergarments as sexually suggestive and deny that visitation. Visitors must wear footwear. Visitors will not be admitted to the facilities if they are wearing clothing or insignias with language, symbols, or markings that indicate affiliation with a criminal gang, that contain derogatory comments or slurs directed at a class of people, or may otherwise disrupt the order of either facility or place a person’s safety at risk. It is important for visitors to dress appropriately and follow the guidelines regarding language and attitude.
What do I need to bring in order to visit a resident at the facility?
A valid photo identification, normally a driver’s license or identification card, is required to be presented prior to the visit. The facility staff will retain the identification and issue the visitor a visitor’s tag during the course of the visit. At the conclusion of the visit, the visitor returns the visitor tag and retrieves their identification.
Do I have to fill anything out when visiting?
All visits are required to complete a Visitor / Sponsor Application prior to the visit. In most cases, visitors are allowed to visit immediately after the application is completed. In cases where the visitor has an active warrant out for their arrest, the visitor may be detained or arrested by the local police department. If you are currently on probation or parole, your visitation will be delayed until the supervising officer or agency authorizes the visit.
Can I have physical contact with a facility resident?
Visitors are allowed to give a facility resident a brief embrace at the beginning and end of the visit. Further physical contact is prohibited and grounds for revocation of a visitor’s visit.
Can I give money to a resident?
All monies received by a resident must be declared to facility staff. If a visitor, friend or relative wants to provide a client with funds, they must alert the on-duty staff of their intent and the amount.
Can I drink alcohol or use illegal drugs before visiting a facility resident?
No person under the influence of alcohol or illegal drugs will be permitted to visit a facility client or be permitted to remain on the facility property. Visitors may be asked to submit to an intoxilyzer in order for the staff to gauge if they are under the influence. Visitors who refuse to submit an intoxilyer will be asked to vacate the premises immediately.
Can I bring a pager, cell phone, or money to a facility resident?
Many of the above listed items are considered contraband. It is best to consult with facility staff or the resident’s counselor prior to bringing anything to a facility resident during a visit.
What is the facility waiting list?
Work Release frequently has a waiting list for offender admissions. The waiting list is prioritized by the date of sentencing, court order, employment status of the offender, and the offender’s ability to obtain employment. The waiting list changes on a daily basis according to court orders and bed space availability.
