Re-Entry Housing Program

Housing assistance for the formerly incarcerated

RCHP-AHC’s Re-Entry Housing Program
is designed to provide safe, stable and affordable housing for individuals that are leaving incarceration and transitioning back into the community. We understand that finding a stable place to live can be a major challenge for those reentering society, and we’re here to help.


Our Lease/Sublease program features a lease/sublease model, which means that we lease an apartment/house and sublease individual units to our program participants. This model has several benefits as it allows us to offer a variety of housing options in different locations of the state so our participants can choose the area that works best for them and their needs.
Shared Housing

Our shared housing model features affordable units that are shared between multiple participants to reduce the costs to a fraction of the rent. Units will have shared living spaces such as the bathrooms, kitchens and living rooms, but each tenant will have their own bedroom.

Support & Resources

Our program also provides additional support and resources that are tailored to each individuals’ needs, to help our participants succeed and become self-sufficient. We offer case management services and work hand-in-hand with other agencies and organizations to help you obtain all of the services needed for a successful reentry. We are committed to helping our participants build a strong foundation for their future.

Participant Requirements

To be eligible for our program, participants must meet certain criteria. These may include:
  • Must be at least 18 years of age
  • Must have a criminal record

We understand that each participant’s situation is unique, and we review each application on a case-by-case basis as not every applicant will be accepted into the program.
