Butte Community Based Coalition

The Butte Community Based Coalition is a collaborative effort between the Butte County Office of Education (BCOE), California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR), Butte County Sheriff, Butte County Probation and Tehama County Probation. The program is specifically designed to provide men and women returning from state prison or county jail with services necessary for a successful transition back into the community.

The primary objective of the CBC model is to:

  • Ease client transition to the community
  • Preserve public safety
  • Promote positive re-entry experiences

Participants include men and women on parole, probation, or under the Sheriff's supervision.

The BCBC provides full wrap-around services in the areas of Life Skills, Education, Treatment Services, and Job Readiness Skills.

Individualized Treatment Plan (ITP)

A client's Individual Treatment Plan will be developed upon entering the program. As the client progresses through the program the plan will be revised, and it is considered a living document that will guide the client's participation through the duration of the program.
