The new Twin Falls Community Reentry Center is a step closer to accepting its first residents.  

The chairman of the Idaho Board of Correction, Dr. David McClusky, cut the ribbon for the facility’s ceremonial opening last Thursday. The first of the 160 men who will live at TF-CRC are expected to arrive in early November. 

Idaho Department of Correction Director Josh Tewalt said he is “personally appreciative” of the support TF-CRC has received from elected officials, employers and treatment providers in the Magic Valley.  

“These aren't just beds for the Idaho Department of Correction,” Tewalt said. “This facility will help improve public safety throughout the Magic Valley by providing opportunities for a gradual transition for folks who are coming back here anyway.”

IDOC operates four other reentry centers – in Nampa, Boise, Kuna and Idaho Falls. They house low-risk, minimum custody men and women who are nearing the end of their sentences. The centers help residents find jobs, save money and re-connect with their families in a safe, structured environment prior to their release from custody.
