Female Residential Multi-Service Center
The FRMSC is a strength-based, trauma-informed, and family-focused program. It is designed to provide comprehensive programming that addresses each individual’s pathway into the criminal system. We provide continuum of care services and referral to community resources to help with recovery and successful reintegration. The purpose of this program is to help women heal, gain trust, and learn coping skills. Women will recognize learning opportunities, address criminal behavior paths, and begin connecting with children, family, and significant others where appropriate. We are a professional treatment services program designed specifically to meet the needs of female adult offenders. We offer a full continuum of gender-responsive services to help women reintegrate into their communities, and develop and maintain highly productive lifestyles. In particular, Bridges has a long history of guiding female offenders with substance abuse disorders toward recovery, reunification with their children and families, and their communities.
It is our vision to provide a safe environment where female offenders are treated with dignity and respect while receiving effective gender-responsive services. We provide female offenders with gender-responsive supervision, treatment, and services that increase opportunities for successful reintegration into their communities while reducing the number of females incarcerated in California.
