This resource is targeted to non-profits, CoCs, and other interested parties who want to develop a housing program for ex-offenders. It presents a step-by-step approach for developing housing for ex-offenders, taking into account types of housing, availability of funds, and management capacity. Real case studies from Harriet's House in Raleigh, NC and The Fortune Society in New York, NY illustrate how non-profits can plan, design, and fund a program for housing ex-offenders.
