housing crisis

High quality, structured and sober housing provides vital stability for securing and maintaining employment and to adequately address medical and psychological needs. As such, this is the most important area of support for the reduction of recidivism and the transformation of  lives. Yet, this housing option barely exists for most ex-offenders reentering society.
