At this time, ANWOL is looking to identify and place formerly incarcerated people with family members living in the HACLA’s Section 8 housing. After placement, ANWOL will then connect both the individual and family with intensive case management and support services to ensure the success of the reunification and housing arrangement.
Regrettably, this is just a pilot program, meaning at this time, due to funding, we are only able to accept a very limited number of clients. If you think you might be interested, please answer the following questions, and someone from ANWOL will get back to you about possible next steps. Please do not hesitate to call if you have any questions or concerns, we are here to support in your transition back to a successful community life. Even if we are not able to accept you into this program, we will be sure to refer you to people that can.
Unfortunately, there are some restrictions from the local and federal housing authorities that we have no control over. Though we think all people deserve a chance at reentry and success, due to legal restrictions, you cannot be part of the program at this time if:
- You are a lifetime registered sex offender
- You have been convicted of manufacturing methamphetamines in public housing or Section 8 housing
- You have been convicted of a domestic violence felony
- You have been evicted from public housing or Section 8 housing for a drug related activity in the last three years from the date of application.**
- **If you have successfully completed a supervised drug rehabilitation program; or the circumstances leading to the conviction no longer exist, you might still be eligible!
- Your family is currently staying in public housing. Only families in the Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles (HACLA)’s Section 8 housing are eligible.
