Housing Ex-offenders Forum

Over 10,000 ex-offenders are released from state and federal prisons every week and arrive on the doorsteps of our communities, a statistic reported from the US Department of Health and Human Services. As these individuals are released, housing plays an essential role in the success of their reintegration to the community.  Housing for ex-offenders is a unique and particularly challenging niche within the affordable housing industry.  Social stigmas, administrative burdens, and limited financial resources have often discouraged projects from moving forward, adding more pressure to the existing affordable housing supply.   As members of the affordable housing community, we cannot ignore the ex-offenders residential population by choosing to opt out of development for this unique type of housing all together. This forum will explore the specific challenges to providing this type of housing, opportunities for partnership and financing and how to overcome the obstacles and opposition from the community when siting these developments.  This solutions-oriented session will offer possible strategies and resources to respond to these challenges.
