The Prisons Halfway House Scheme, which started in April 1995, allows amenable offenders of Drug Rehabilitation Centres and Prisons without strong family support to spend their last stage of their detention at the halfway houses. To enhance the provision of transitional care to better meet the needs of offenders, the Halfway House Service Model was launched in October 2010.

SCORE has been appointed to co-ordinate the Halfway House Service Model and work towards enhancing the programmes and professionalism of halfway houses under the Prisons Halfway House Scheme. As the Managing Agent, SCORE is responsible to review and implement policies related to HWH services, as well as maintain supervision over the training of HWH staff, HWH programmes, operations and facilities. SCORE also assists HWHs in cyclical maintenance and renovation to ensure adherence to safety standards. 

This new service model provides a framework to enable halfway houses to operate a consistent and dedicated programme based on stipulated service requirements. Structured and professional rehabilitation services would be provided to facilitate offenders' reintegration into the society. Currently, there are 8 halfway houses participating in Prisons Halfway House Scheme and administering the Service Model.
