The purpose of the Franklin County CBCF is to provide, as a sentencing option for selected offenders, a controlled and regimented environment that is motivational, safe, affirms the dignity of self and others; promotes the value of work and self-discipline; and develops useful skills and abilities through an individualized but group oriented program.

The CBCF program is designed to motivate the residents, meet the individual needs of the residents and assist them in gradual and successful community reentry while providing for security and public safety throughout the CBCF sentence.
