Stop Saying Your Providing Transitional Services to Felons

This petition had 58 supporters

The Department of Corrections for years has stated they are transitioning felons back into society, but how can this be when you've got three and four men/women living in a one-room bunk bed living arrangement? Then you charge them $17 to $20 a day rent whether they have a job or not. Furthermore, causing them debt and stress which can easily lead up to them doing something that will only land them back in jail. The halfway houses are over-packed and the halfway house staff's morals and standards and value are beneath humanity. We have halfway house staff violating fillings for little of nothing sending them back to jail for little of nothing instead of them doing their jobs which should be to provide resources on top of resources for the betterment and the real transition of these individuals lives. The Center 4 Change petitions that we take the halfway houses out of the picture, the DOC out of the picture and let some real individuals with very high moral standards and values start performing and doing what it will take to get these individuals back functioning in a society as an valued asset and contributor to our communities versus a felon waiting to go back to jail.
