White Paper on Crime 2021 Part2/Chapter5/Section3/2
Halfway houses are institutions that are commissioned, mainly by probation offices, to provide accommodation, meals, employment support, living guidance, etc. to persons under probation/parole supervision or those receiving urgent aftercare because of their difficulties in becoming independent due to lack of residence or person to rely on, and thus support their smooth reintegration into society. As of April 1, 2021, there were 103 halfway houses nationwide.
Fig. 2-5-3-3 shows the trend in the number of persons newly entrusted to halfway houses.
