Question on finding housing
Q: Have you found an effective method for finding housing when needed?

A: We have Release Planners that work really hard to find housing for the serious mentally ill, and also for a proportion of those offenders who need CD services upon release.  It’s always a struggle. Sex offenders are the hardest to find housing for, I think.  We could use more release planners, also!
 
I’m not sure I have any magic bullets for this issue.  We do have some offenders able to qualify to get into CD halfway houses in the community, but finding housing and employment opportunities post-release seems to be a struggle for this population everywhere.
