SHARP

Stable Housing and Reintegration Program

“We Are Keeping Families Together”

Background


The Stable Housing and Reintegration Program (SHARP) is a multifaceted and comprehensive approach to reentry. SHARP addresses the needs of justice-involved individuals (JIIs) and formerly incarcerated people (FIPs) on a holistic level by providing a continuum of care and economic stability. The goal of SHARP is to build paths to homeownership for JIIs and FIPs, divest from inequitable, discriminatory systems, returning not just resources but control over these resources to the individuals most impacted by systemic racism.
