Supportive housing community helps parents facing homelessness after incarceration to reunite with their families and build a foundation for the future.
Passage Point

Incarceration, addiction, and homelessness make it difficult to overcome barriers to obtain housing, employment, and education. Passage Point offers supportive housing, services, and advocacy for previously incarcerated parents to facilitate family reunification and stability.  

Through educational and social opportunities, Passage Point helps reduce the chances of re-incarceration by equipping parents with the tools, skills, and resources for success. Re-Entry Life Coaches work with residents individually, encouraging self-sufficiency, positive community interaction, and connecting people to community services. 

Services for residents include: 

  • Pre-release screening and counseling 
  • Intensive case management 
  • Family reunification support 
  • Education, job training, and placement support 
  • Financial literacy and budgeting 
  • Mental health and chemical dependency counseling 
  • Domestic violence support 
  • Self-improvement programs 
  • Children services and school liaison support 
  • Permanent housing planning 
  • Follow-up case management 

Passage Point is a project unlike any other in our region and makes a lasting difference for the families who live here and the community as a whole.
