A Supportive Housing Resource for Returning Citizens in Tennessee
COMING to NASHVILLE
Each year approximately 700,000 individuals return home from state prisons in the United States and an additional 9 million are released from county jails. More than 10% of those coming in and out of prisons and jails are homeless in the months preceding and following their incarceration (Council of State Governments, 2016). Being homeless, unstably housed, or living in a high crime neighborhood all heighten an individual’s risk of reoffending (Andrews & Bonta, 1995).
It is during their return that most returning citizens encounter extremely difficult times. From gainful employment to stable housing, reconnecting with family to identifying vital resources, Restoration Transition Homes' purpose is to develop a holistic approach to reentry that addresses the tough issues, provides education, resources, and support, and establishes a solid foundation for reentry success.
Slated to open in Fall 2022, the first home will be located in Nashville, Tennessee with additional homes opening across the state over a ten-year period. Stay tuned to social media for more information on how you can help.
