Re-Entry Partnership Housing will be discussed at a meeting in Savannah Wednesday.

The program provides housing to inmates being released from prison, who sometimes have to stay incarcerated for lack of a place to stay.

Daisy Jones, community coordinator and executive director of the Liberty County Reentry Coalition, said there is only one RPH provider here and that more are needed

"Many individuals complete their prison sentences with high hopes for success, feelings of regret and alienation," she said.

RPH is a means to provide housing to convicted felons who remain in prison after the Parole Board has authorized their release due solely to having no residential options.

"Having somewhere to call home is vital for these individuals and every one of us," Jones said. "Are you interested in becoming a housing provider?"

The meeting will be at noon Wednesday at the Ross Workforce Services Center, 7216 Skidaway Road. Lisa Brown from the Department of Community Supervision Housing Services division, will provide information and answer any questions.

It you’d like to attend, call Jones at 912-877-5293, 912-318-4346 or 318-6822.
