Securing a suitable form of housing is among the most important resettlement or re-entry needs of people leaving prison. In some countries, people’s housing needs are temporarily deferred by mandatory residence in accommodation that is either directly operated or overseen by criminal justice agencies. Typically lasting for only a short period, residence in such accommodation nevertheless provides criminal justice professionals with opportunities to provide enhanced levels of monitoring and support. This chapter will explore the types of approach taken to the provision of accommodation and residential services for people leaving prison in England and Wales, the US, and Canada. Drawing on research, policy documents, and relevant legislation, it will identify the core aims and content of such provision, discuss points of overlap and divergence, and consider the likely future of post-release residential supervision in each country.
