I need some help! My best friend see's parole in May 2010. We are looking for halfway houses for him to go in for when he gets parole. There have been people that told me that the halfway houses with accept them or give an application before parole., but when I call these progrmas the people are telling me that we need referal letters from the parole board, or from a parole officer, or from someone else. What should I be saying to these people when I call them? Does anyone have any tips for me? I didnt realize how stressful this can be!!!
