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.

Resident Families Receive: Housing in a one or two bedroom apartment, fully furnished and decorated. The apartment is stocked with food until the resident is employed and income is generated. The family receives clothing for employment, school, etc. Upon completion of the program, the family will be provided furniture and items necessary to start a positive future.
Household items and supplies in good condition for residents starting anew are needed. This can include:
- kitchen equipment
- cleaning supplies
- food, and anything else that someone would need in a new home.
Each Exodus House has two staff members, a case manager and a facility manager, who live on site. The facility manager sees that the apartments and grounds are fully maintained.The on site case manager helps residents to get their lives restarted. One area of focus for Exodus House is reunification of families. Resident and case manager work together with the court system and Department of Human Services for the return of custody of resident’s children when possible. Family support continues with parenting classes, anger management classes, and counseling when needed.
