Columbus House is a community-based residential facility for adult men who are Department of Corrections clients. Capacity is fourteen men and the house is almost always full. Columbus House has been in operation since 1990 and assists residents in transitioning back into the community by providing them with an opportunity to secure housing, employment, and community social services. The combination of client monitoring and support enhances community safety. Columbus House also maintains a tradition of providing support for former residents through encouraging them to stop by for meals, coffee and conversation with our staff.
