John P. Craine House is an alternative sentencing program for non-violent female offenders and their pre-school age children. This facility is one of six in existence in the country and the only one in the Midwest. There are two main components within our program: Residential and Day Reporting. Our Residential program allows women from within Marion and surrounding counties to serve out their executed sentence with their children, in lieu of jail or prison. The program offers structure and guidance with individualized goals for the women. Craine House offers an array of programs to better serve each woman’s needs: parenting, GED classes, tutoring, health and nutrition, substance abuse programs, employment resources, and faith-based opportunities.
