The Indiana reentry program and assistance page is a big work in progress. We try to keep our eyes out for more programs to add to the page. If your Indiana reentry program is not listed here, please contact us if you would like it to be. Your program will be reviewed as soon as possible once we receive it. If we feel that it is a good addition to our Indiana reentry programs page, we will add it.
Also, please contact us if there are any issues with a Indiana reentry program that is listed here. We do try to keep this page as up to date as possible, but we’re not perfect. Sometimes we do miss things, and appreciate them being pointed out to us. We will fix issues as soon as we find them or they are brought to our attention.

My son is going to face the same reaction. I, too, am looking for information as to safe housing in an area where he can find employment. Thanks for bringing that up.
I am glad to see that there is an organization out there that does believe in people, or at least, that believes people can change. I am an exoffender. The thing I would like to see, is help on getting myself established in a home. I have never been turned away from a rental in the past, but now, all I repeatedly hear is: There will be a $25.00 application fee. And then to get the returned call of “I’m sorry, we cannot accept you, due to the background check coming back as criminal”. And i’m out $25.00. I do have a job, Just can’t find myself a home. Can anybody help?
