Housing Georgia Teams Up with Advocates to Reduce Recidivism

From NLIHC – Over the past five years, Georgia Governor Nathan Deal (R) has launched criminal justice reform efforts that have made Georgia an exemplar in reentry innovation and recidivism reduction.

Housing advocates have mobilized around Governor Deal’s initiatives and have used the momentum from his efforts to push for housing programs targeted towards reducing recidivism. Advocates, including Paul Bolster of the Georgia Supportive Housing Alliance, Elizabeth Appley of Housing Georgia, and Doug Ammar of the Georgia Justice Project, formed a Reentry Housing Working Group.
