Re-Entry Housing Support Program

Home is the cornerstone from which people build better lives for themselves and their families. People with records, like everyone else, deserve a place to call home.

Housing Choice Partners is working with the State of Illinois to provide housing options for citizens returning from incarceration. We are looking for donations and funds to supply individuals with items to sustain their housing.

Stable housing for people with records is key to reducing recidivism and helping us all build strong, safe communities.

Please note: this program is a limited entry pilot program coordinated by the Illinois Housing Development Authority and the Illinois Department of Corrections. If you or a family member are returning from incarceration and need assistance, please visit our friends at https://saferfoundation.org/.
