Default Parole in AZ - can they parole to an apartment?

I have a quick question. Is it hard to be paroled to a apartment? If so why? How can they stay at one

Inmates are allowed to parole to an apartment. The only issues are 1) does the apartment allow felons (read your lease). 2) Even if the apartment allows felons, there are certain charges / offenders that are excluded (sex offenders, violent offenders, etc) 3) The PO may speak with the apartment manager / landlord, who can deny a home placement for any reason.

I would find out these answers well in advance of possible parole so the inmate isn't scrambling for a place to parole to at the last minute.

Every where that rents I'm finding is that they want to have ID, etc. for all people who will be residing in the apartment. How does that work when the person isn't even here yet? I'm trying to secure housing for when my nephew is out in Jan/Feb and his caseworker from the prison wants an address, but I won't have an address until he comes and we rent a place (assuming we can even find a place).

Very scared and confused about this whole thing. I can't let my nephew stay with me because (1) my step daughter stays with us every weekend (2) we live in a very rural area and he's never learned to drive and there's no bus services out here on dirt roads so no way for him to get to a job, etc. (3) his mom is disabled and lives under State funded housing and no one else is allowed to live with her or she will lose her apartment. (4) His mom doesn't work and I can barely support my own house so I don't know how I can afford to pay his rent for more than a month without getting in financial trouble - but if he can't find a job quickly even me renting something for him will ruin my credit when I can't keep paying for it.

How does anyone survive after they get out?

Sadly, that is part of the reason for recidivism. 10% are immediately homeless. 30% of those with addiction problems who are released from prison are homeless.

My son will live with me, so I haven't had to research that issue. I have reviewed a website called jobsforfelons in regards to everything from jobs to insurance. They do list by state some places that will rent to inmates. It might be a resource for you to review for that and other things your nephew will need.

The other thing to look for is any organizations, religious and not, who may help inmates upon release. After the jobsforfelons hub, do a general search of how to afford rent upon release from prison.

I also found a book that I haven't read myself, but sent to my son that was recommended that talks about the things inmates need to be doing upon release from prison to get a job. You may be able to find something that is helpful through your local library that can help you help get your nephew get situated with his various needs.

As was already mentioned, check with your local public library. They often have free programs on resume writing, job interviewing, computer skills, plus a plethora of "how to" books Also check with Adult Ed in your area and the Office of Employment and Training.

He should apply for SNAP (food stamps) and medical insurance as as possible once released.

Good luck to you and your nephew
