The Exodus House is a key part of CJAMM’s vision to offer opportunities for ex offenders to have a healthy, nurturing, and accountable environment where they may begin their life again.
We accept those incarcerated to our program while still in DOC (Department Of Corrections) custody through an application process and do not charge rent while they are here. We have individualized treatment plans and upon completion of our 6 month program they can take all furniture and household goods. Each resident only pays their electric and share an apartment with another person.
Exodus House is a six-month temporary residential project. These are small apartment complexes where people newly released from prison can live with their families while they re-enter life successfully outside prison walls. Leaders say those who take this route rarely return to prison.
The furnished apartment, complete with linens, cooking and eating utensils, is provided free of charge, except for the cost of electricity. Residents stay for a limited time and are permitted to take all the apartment’s contents when they move.
Exodus Houses welcome donations of items for the apartments.
