HOW DO I BECOME A RESIDENT?

LifeHouse Group currently accepts individuals leaving the Illinois Department of Corrections and approaching their time on parole. The process of finding housing placement usually begins around 30-60 days prior to an offender’s release date.

 

In order to secure placement at LifeHouse, a currently incarcerated individual must complete the following these steps. For more information or to request placement, feel free to complete the Application Form or contact us at info@lifehouse-group.com.

30-60 days prior to release:

Step 1

Inform the Field Service Representatives at their respective prison that they wish to be approved to live at LifeHouse.

Step 2

Refuse alternate placement locations. Typically, the first option for the Field Service Representatives would be with friends or family, placements which frequently do not have the same long-term success as LifeHouse.
