    Default Who knows what options there are?

    This is interesting - a whole new area that no one has ever posted a thread on. A very important topic anyway, especially for inmates like my PP who were incarcerated at a very young age and do not have a wife, a house, or helping family members. Does anyone know what the options are for inmates who don't have a house to go to?

    I would imagine if they had no family etc they would parole to a halfway house, but as Mr Bear said different states will have different rules,
    Once you eliminate the impossible whatever remains however improbable must be the truth

    My PP is in Florida, but his family lives in North Carolina. Then again, I don't think his family is any use. What does a halfway house mean exactly?

    Usually they send the inmates out there straight out of prison. It's group living so they do have rules regarding curfew and stuff and he'll have to apply for social services I believe while he attempts to get a job and usually have a set time to stay there.

    Thanks YMI. I wonder if this is the same in all countries. I mean, if you are released, you have paid your dues... But then again, if you have nowhere else to stay... I'm still trying to understand the ways justice works in the US. It's a difference of day and night with Europe.

    I don't know statistics but part of "paying your debt to society" often involves parole or some sort of post release supervision as part of their sentencing. So when they are done doing their time, they are still under watch and still have some rules to live by, i.e. no drug use, perhaps no drinking, etc. But while on parole they are usually free to live wherever they want, i.e. with parents, wife, girlfriend, alone, etc. It only becomes an issue if you are trying to "parole out" to somewhere outside of your jurisdiction.

    The Halfway Houses are set out to HELP the person get on their feet, not as further punishment. As you said, we're talking about people who have NOWHERE to go. It's a place for them to rest their head while they find a job and get their life on the street back in order.

    What happens in the Netherlands if someone gets out of prison and has no place to go?

    This.
    one of my pp's went to a work release program in August, he gets out This Saturday. So like, from the work release and he's done with his time. And then he'll be on parole for 18 months.

    Here and I might be mistaken but doing something like work release is for the GOOD boys because it becomes part of the time you were GOING to do. It eats up time that would have otherwise been spent in prison. And I believe once someone is done with their work release a halfway house is still an option.
