Joshua Glover House

The Joshua Glover House is a licensed community-based halfway house that is owned and operated by Wisconsin Community Services, Inc. (WCS). Glover House serves male residents who are referred to the program by the Wisconsin Department of Corrections. The program provides structured groups and individual counseling activities designed to address residents' substance dependence and mental health issues.

Program Goal

The overall goals of Glover House are to: • Provide appropriate options for community-based residential services for offenders. • Provide sufficient structure and supervision to assist offenders in successfully moving from more restrictive environments or unstable living situations toward independent living while protecting the personal safety and property rights of the public. • Provide offender accountability and community protection. • Increase basic living skills to prepare offenders for self-sufficiency and independent living. • Address treatment and educational needs of offenders to prevent or lessen the likelihood of re-involvement in criminal behavior. • Assist offenders in establishing and maintaining an alcohol/drug free lifestyle. • Provide a behavioral program which addresses crime producing risk factors of antisocial attitudes, associates and personality characteristics.

Program History

Wisconsin Community Services, Inc. has operated the Joshua Glover House program since 1980. Beginning on July 1, 2013, the program moved from 2105 North Booth Street, Milwaukee, WI, to 2404 North 50th Street, Milwaukee, WI.

Program Method

Residents remain in the program at least 90 days but for as long as 180 days if a longer stay provides substantial benefit and is agreed upon with the resident’s Probation/Parole Agent. The treatment emphasis is cognitive-oriented approach to encourage resident change. The program focuses on assessing resident's individual needs, and stabilizing them in the halfway house setting where they participate in evidence-based AODA, Mental Health and Anger Management groups. Services are resident centered, always mindful of the resident in the context of his community living situation and legal obligations to the courts.
