Out of prison, out of work; what do you do?

Posted: March 3, 2013 in Causes of Homelessness

Here is a look at one of the causes of homelessness. People recently released from prison quite often find themselves without a place to go. It is difficult to find jobs and overcome the barriers of poverty. This reblog looks at the struggles faced by people recently released from prisons.

In my work at the Lord’s Kitchen in Louisville, KY feeding the homeless, I often heard the people there say they had just been released from prison or jail. Often their families turn their backs on them and they don’t have a place to live when they are released.-Donna
