A worried mother in Cuyahoga County called relink.org's business hours phone number in behalf of her son. Her son is currently living in a halfway house after a few taxing years in an Ohio prison and is looking for an apartment.
Now, in full transparency, this request is often a tough one, but our statewide coordinator quickly got to work on the task. Apartments that accept tenants with felony records are few and far between to begin with -- add in other specificities such as 'near a bus station,' 'accepts pets' and a strict budget and this is sometimes nearly impossible.
Thankfully after a few afternoons of searching and phone calls, six housing options were acquired and passed along to this mother and her son to choose from and schedule visits for. relink.org has many reentry opportunities and even the challenging cases end in success. If you or a loved one are reentering society after incarceration, visit relink.org for the resources you may need.
