reentry is a tough part

Poncho’s idea: “returning citizens” former inmates make good neighbors; keep up their lawns; check in with the elderly. you only hear about the bad ones, but returning citizens know how to live in community

Builders/contractors hire re entrees, then reentries “rent to own” the houses they build. Live in community til they get on their feet, build credit, live w/others who mentor them

need relationships that form while they’re in, and last as they transition and re enter. (they got nothing, often a family that can’t or won’t support them, or one that they might be best not going back to, new start)
