Housing assistance planning

Appropriate and stable housing plays a fundamental role in a returning citizen’s successful reentry, not only as a place to live, but also as a foundation for meeting other basic needs and getting needed services. Reimagine Reentry helps to guide and navigate folks through this confusing process, and help secure housing through partnerships with local organizations and individuals. While rental payments are still expected of you, we may help with housing stipends secured through government assistance and/or local charities and organizations, based on availability.
