I know that there are parole loans available to receive but I didn't think michigan had any half way houses open. I know the one that was in Kalamazoo has been closed for several years.

The only half way houses i have found have been for sobriety purposes (rehabs) not criminal behavior. I also know that in kalamazoo there is a place called KPEP that some offenders are assigned too and it is similar to a standard half way house but only deals with low level offenses (misdeamenors, drug court, DVs and small probation/parole violations)

This was interesting......... http://www.clarecountyreview.com/?p=3209

The “parolee home” in Clare County is not owned by the MDOC; rather, it is owned by Horizons Property Management. Like any other private entity/landlord, Horizon’s Property Management is free to rent to whomever it wishes. In this particular case, the person Horizon’s chose to rent to happens to be an MDOC parolee; it could have just as well been a person not under MDOC supervision. Since the tenant is a parolee covered under the MPRI umbrella, the monthly rent is subsidized through MPRI funds.

I know this thread is several months old (where have I been? :rolleyes:), but MPRI is paying $500.00 per month for parolees in Pontiac for one or two months only in homes that are privately owned and have several parolees in residence.

Well with this economy there are certainly plenty of vacant houses that could be used for parolees.
MPRI really does have a lot to offer and I would be interested in seeing the stats on how this is working and if it is working, some good press articles on that too, instead of just covering the vote whores right now still using the get tough on crime mantra.
