As there are now more than 2 million people imprisoned within the United States, the demand for halfway houses has increased substantially. Halfway houses are able to remain profitable and cash flow positive in any economic climate given that they receive a substantial amount of their income from publicly funded contracts. The startup costs of a halfway house are moderate. Generally, they can be developed for $100,000 to $500,000 depending – primarily – on whether or not the real estate for the facility is purchased. The primary other expense associated with starting a halfway house is the necessary professional fees, licensure, and government contract acquisition associated with starting these businesses.

Prior to starting a halfway house, it is imperative that you develop a business plan specific for this business. This business plan should showcase the anticipated startup costs, ongoing operational costs, and how the halfway house will become eligible to receive funding from the state in which the business conducts operations or the federal government.

After your business plan is developed, the next step is to develop a halfway house marketing plan. This marketing plan should focus specifically on how the business will obtain government contacts to render housing and rehabilitation to individuals in the community that have been recently released from incarceration or due to drug/alcohol abuse issues.

Commonly when developing a plan to start a halfway house, a SWOT analysis is developed to showcase the ongoing strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats that are faced by these types of businesses. As it relates to strengths, the demand for these services remains strong in any economic climate. Weaknesses are that the operating costs of these businesses are generally high. For opportunities, the owners of these businesses usually seek to establish additional properties once their current operations reach capacity. Threats include changes to regulations that could impact the way that a halfway house conducts operations.

In closing, operating a halfway house can be a lucrative business if it is done correctly. Given, again, the substantial inmate population within theĀ United StatesĀ – the demand for quality rehabilitative care is not expected to wane anytime soon. Additionally, if costs are controlled, these businesses can increase their profitability on a year on year basis. Most importantly, many states as well as the federal government are continually seeking to reduce their expenditures by contracting private businesses that can render these services on their behalf. As such, the opportunities for people wanting to own and operate a halfway house are tremendous.
