We won’t lie. Finding housing can be one of the hardest parts about re-entry, especially if you’ve been in prison for a long time. Remerg.com does not have a list of places where you can rent. We wish we did. However, several resources below, such as Colorado Housing Connects, may help you find a place to rent. Many people find housing through their networks and word-of-mouth, referrals from re-entry organizations, or just driving through a neighborhood looking for “For Rent” signs.
If you’re already a renter but have difficulty with a landlord or eviction, several advocacy organizations are also listed below.
The Help section provides advice to help you find a place to rent (don’t overlook the value of working with a re-entry organization!), as well as advice about leases, being a renter, and more.
