Ex Housing

Not only do ex offenders have problems finding employment but they also have problems finding housing... many Lanlords run background checks and refuse to rent to felons... no wonder why there is a 89% likelyhood that felons return to prison within 18 months of release: employers refuse to hire, landlords refuse to rent...
