Housing the Reentry Population

The Southern California Association of Nonprofit Housing (SCANPH), Enterprise Community Partners, and the Los Angeles Regional Reentry Partnership (LARRP) are hosting a training and information symposium to introduce affordable housing developers, operators and service providers to the unique needs of the reentry population; examine the role affordable housing developers can play in supporting these needs; explore how funding sources potentially available through criminal justice legislation (AB 109, Prop. 47) can finance these projects.

What is Reentry? What is Realignment?

“Reentry” is the process that formerly incarcerated people go through when they end incarceration and begin to reintegrate into their communities    

"Realignment" transfers the responsibility of incarcerating and supervising low level inmates and parolees from the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation to the county level. Currently one-fifth of this budget is available to support realignment services such as job training, physical health, mental health, substance abuse treatment, and affordable housing.

Why are we hearing so much about reentry now?

Prior to October 2011, people were primarily sent to state prison for felony convictions. When they returned to their communities, they were under the supervision and support of state parole. Since Public Safety Realignment (AB 109), people convicted of non-serious felonies primarily serve their sentences in county jail and those completing their sentences in state prison return under the supervision of county probation. Incarceration, supervision, and reentry support of felons with non-serious convictions have become responsibilities of counties.

Our training and symposium will give developers a primer to the challenges of the reentry population. Then we will look to discuss what it means to develop, own, and manage housing for this population. 

WE ARE SOLD OUT. If you would like to be added to the waiting list or see if walk-in admission is still available, please call (213) 480-1249.
