Transitional and Permanent Housing
More than half of formerly incarcerated New Yorkers are homeless upon their release, and being homeless steeply increases their chance of re-arrest. Public investment in a range of options, including transitional, supportive housing and resources for welcoming families, benefits individuals, their families, and the communities where they make their homes.
What We’re Doing
Using the lessons we learn developing Osborne’s own transitional housing projects, we advocate for a spectrum of options to meet a spectrum of needs. With our coalition partners, we call for public investment that supports people transitioning from incarceration to independence, families seeking to welcome formerly incarcerated members home, and permanent homes to promote long-term stability.
