Our Executive Director talks to N. Las Vegas Council about Transitional Housing for people on Parole and Probation.
Ex-offenders are part of our community and they should have every opportunity at rehabilitation.
Providing housing for Nevada inmates who have been approved for Parole but don’t have approved housing and remain in custody.
We're working with North Las Vegas Councilman Isaac Barron, Las Vegas Councilman Brian Knudsen, Vera Moore with True Beginnings,
Cassandra Hein with After Orange, Caanen with W.H.I.P. Inc, and the Nevada Department of Parole and Probation to create real solutions to the parolee housing crisis.
Over 300 inmates go over their parole date due to not having approved housing. This crisis not only affects inmates waiting to come home but also plays a role in prison overcrowding and the extra cost of housing inmates who could legally be out of custody. We will together create housing for people who have been granted parole but are still incarcerated because they lack approved housing. We will also focus on creating or changing laws to make it easier for formerly incarcerated individuals will be able to obtain housing and have access to rehabilitation services.
To break the cycle of recidivism, formerly incarcerated individuals must be given the tools needed to successfully re-enter our community and become productive members of society. Thru our partnerships with local organizations, local and state officials formerly incarcerated individuals will have access to housing, education opportunities, employment, and counseling services.
We exist to provide a second chance to those re-entering society by giving them opportunity in the local community. Providing them with the necessary tools to succeed beyond us. We serve at-risk families by meeting their physical and emotional needs first, then help them structure better lives for a better future.
When residents arrive they receive a $50 credit to go shopping for clothes at Castaways's Thrift Store.
All of our residential locations are approved by the Parole and Probation. We work with their Re-entry department to place inmates who don't have approve housing. We work to streamline the process so inmates don't have to stay over their approved release date.
