Full Story: https://indianapublicmedia.org/news/high-rent-and-life-in-a-pandemic-make-finding-housing-harder-than-ever-for-people-with-criminal-records.php Rental rates have increased in Indiana, and one report says apartment prices in Indianapolis are up by as much as 10 percent since 2019.

For people who have just been released from jail or prison, this compounded with adjusting to life in a pandemic – makes finding housing more difficult than ever.

Robin and Trisha’s House tries to mitigate that challenge. Since opening last spring, the organization has provided housing for six men who have just been released from incarceration.
