Nowhere to Go: Homelessness among formerly incarcerated people

Following the  report thumbnail In a first-of-its-kind report, we find that formerly incarcerated people are 10 times more likely to be homeless than the general public. People returning from prison are widely excluded from housing, despite needing stable homes to overcome the difficulties of reentry.

This report is the second in a series about the struggles of formerly incarcerated people to access basic needs. In the first report, we calculated the first national unemployment rate for formerly incarcerated people.
