Recently, I’ve been working with the Richmond City Jail to look at the overlap between homelessness and jail incarceration. Locally, we know that around 70% of adults who experience homelessness report that they have been in jail or prison. We have also found that about 1/3 of people who are homeless report that they were homeless the last time they were incarcerated – and 50% indicate that they were homeless upon release. It’s probably no surprise that people don’t expand their support networks and find housing while they are in jail or prison.



Yes, we can end homelessness
