Houston area and surrounding counties receives about 2,600 women released from state prisons and jails each year. According to an Urban Institute study of women returning to Harris County, about 17% of them are virtually homeless. A large portion of the other 83% are returning to unsafe, unstable environments.
In the Fall of 2018, STRESSOUT will open the first of many homes to women who have various levels of needs especially those suffering from stress and trauma. A Re-entry coach will be paired with each woman to assist in their needs by providing information and giving support services needed for every woman living in the home. We are making the transition as comfortable as we can to help each of the women to define who they are again and focus on their goals to having a rewarding life.
