I realize, of course, the specific answer to this question will vary from one jurisdiction to another, but I’m sure the general guidelines are similar.
What happens to someone who is released from prison and has no family/friends on the outside to go to. If they have been in prison for any length of time, they probably don’t have a house/apartment waiting for them on the outside. Likewise, they probably haven’t earned enough during thier time in prison to be able to rent a place right away. So, what happens to these people? Do the prison officials just dump them on the street, or is there some sort of program out there for these people?
