The Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction and the Corporation for Supportive Housing Ohio Office developed a pilot program that provides permanent supportive housing to individuals released from several Ohio prisons. The Pilot intends to reduce recidivism and homelessness/shelter usage and decrease the costs associated with multiple service system use. The Urban Institute is evaluating the Pilot to determine whether it is meeting its intended goals. This Interim Report discusses the results of a re-arrest analysis, comparing the outcomes of individuals who received permanent supportive housing to those who did not. Implications from the analysis are also discussed.
