I was wondering if anyone here had suggestions on any resources in the Denver Metro area concerning housing for recently released inmates. I know someone who has just been released and is having trouble because of a very old sexual offense. No apartments will accept him because of this offense. Do you know any places where he might try or housing assistance programs. Money is not a big issue, just affordable? Thanks to you all for the work you do! Also he is Christian so that may be a resorce!
