ABOUT : Accreditation

Glory House has been a certified member of the American Correctional Association since 2007. It is the only adult residential facility in South Dakota to have this accreditation.

Glory House was audited by the ACA in 2017. It received a 100% rating.

In 2003, Congress passed and President George W. Bush signed the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA). After several years of study and rulemaking, PREA standards were issued in 2012. Glory House then set to work to become compliant with these standards.

Glory House was audited in 2016 and was awarded a Certificate of Compliance with PREA in 2017. Glory House is the only transitional facility in eastern South Dakota to be certified as PREA compliant.
