Hi & welcome to PTO.

From your post I'm not sure if you are saying you can give him lodging? Or are you wanting to know about half way houses, etc.?

He will be sent back to the county he lived in when arrested. If he is a sex offender - the rules about where he can live are pretty strict.

Give us some more info and we will do all we can to help.

If he can't live with you, then he's pretty much on his own. He can ask the parole office about homeless shelters or half-way houses, but there really aren't any resources that provide for long term housing for parolees

if he's paroling to Orange County, the Salvation Army Hospitality house shelter men/women/small families for 7 uninterrupted nights. Talk with the housing guy there. They have a work program. If your sons accepted he can stay there for at lease 30 days...(longer depending on his progress).

Too, depending on the county he lives in, he can call 211 and they will give him some information. Tell him to ask about "transitional" housing.

Some institutions will assist with housing but resources are limited to be honest. They normally have nothing to offer except halfway houses and homeless shelters. I don't know about in California but I know that here in Florida the parole dept. does not care about whether the person the parolee is living with is on housing or not. They just care that they have a stable place to lay their head. Like I said, that's Florida, not sure about California.

Greetings. First of all Parole is not going to look into your affairs becuase your son is living there. If you are on Section 8 (HUD) they may care, if they find out. If the landlord has no isues then it should not be a problem.

There is only a few conditions that automatically bar felons from living in section 8 or federally assisted housing, most have to do with manufacturing drugs, or engaging in criminal activity while living in section 8.

The local housing authority can set additional rules though, so I would call them (anonymously if you are worried) and see what they say.

You only have to declare who lives in your house annually, right? So if you are ok with him living there, let him parole there and then list him as an occupant on your next review.
