Nope, never heard of it. Mostly families take care of that stuff, though at the jail level, attorneys have been known to help with clothing, setting up an otherwise homeless/jobless/ etc prisoner with services or people who can help with services.

Guys who leave prison or jail usually do it on parole or probation. Very few max their sentence and have no supervision. When they leave on parole, they leave with an "approved home plan" that may include halfway house placement if they have nowhere else to go.

You will have the same problem that everybody else has with people who have nobody, or those who are too mentally ill to understand what it means to have people - they won't trust you.

Btw, lists of shelters and the number for the Salvation Army and the like are usually given to people as well, should they max out and leave without a place to go.

You are going to have a ton of problems unless you coordinate with the social services available at the prison, the parole department (remember, being around known felons can be a PV), and get an attorney on board to help with issues like alcohol and drugs, sex offenders, dealing with juveniles and adults in one building, and coordinating social services.
