Annual Report FY2002

Halfway Houses

The agency's halfway houses are located in Dallas, Ft. Worth, El Paso, Corpus Christi, San Antonio, Austin, McAllen, Roanoke and Harlingen.

Together, they have a bed capacity of 218. One facility, Beto House in McAllen, temporarily closed its doors November 29, 2001, because of concerns about mold.

TYC plans to reopen its halfway house program in McAllen in FY 2003. One of the nine halfway houses is designed to treat youth with chemical dependency needs, and another house is reserved for girls.
