HOW DO I BECOME A RESIDENT?
LifeHouse Group currently accepts individuals who are:
Referred by substance use treatment centers in the Chicagoland area;
Are leaving the Illinois Department of Corrections and approaching their time on parole or;
From the general population.
For more information, please call 708-897-8581 during business hours to speak to a customer representative.
For individuals eligible for 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
30-60 days prior to release:
Inform the Field Service Representatives at their respective prison that they wish to be approved to live at LifeHouse.
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.
14-30 days prior to release:
Local Field Service Representatives will then refer placement preference to the Parole Re-Entry Group.
The Parole Re-Entry Group will contact LifeHouse representatives regarding your placement and schedule a screening call.
3-14 days prior to release:
LifeHouse staff will conduct a screening call with prospective residents, and approve or decline admission.
If approved, LifeHouse staff will coordinate with Field Service Representatives to arrange for transportation to our facility upon release.
Day of release:
Notify your LifeHouse Group contact to confirm your estimated time of arrival and area of pick up.
Confirm that you have arrived to your area of pick up and a LifeHouse Group staff member will dispatch transportation to transport you directly to our facility.
