Subject: Halfway house
This depends solely on bed space. Everyone working their way towards the door sometimes meets a log jam getting into a halfway house near their family.

The halfway houses that are supporting released state and county inmates are not necessarily designated for "sex offenders". Most cases the sex offenders are given some anonymity so as to not draw the ire and become a target of other ex-inmates. There will be the registration process that they will have to submit to...

The halfway house is not operated like the prison system. There is no inmate "banking". Inmates are required to get a job and pay the halfway house a percentage of their gross income. If you want to get money to the inmate, you will need to send a money order to them or deposit money in their traditional bank account.
