We realize housing is the most difficult resource to find these days due to rent rates and landlord practices. Please understand we’re doing our best to find places where you might start with your search, but we do not have a list of “felon-friendly” landlords or apartments.
Finding housing can be one of the hardest parts about re-entry, especially if you’ve been in prison for a long time. Several resources below, such as Colorado Housing Connects, may help you find a place to rent. Many people find housing through their networks and word-of-mouth, referrals from re-entry organizations, or just driving through a neighborhood looking for “For Rent” signs.
If you’re already a renter but have difficulty with a landlord or eviction, several advocacy organizations are also listed below.
The Help section provides advice to help you find a place to rent (don’t overlook the value of working with a re-entry organization!), as well as advice about leases, being a renter, and more.
