Starting a halfway house can be a rewarding way to make a living. With a halfway house, you have a chance to make a real difference in the lives of young adults, women and men needing to get a foothold on a normal existence. In return, you receive the satisfaction that you made a positive difference in their lives. When you like caring for people, then a halfway house business will be fun and a perfect fit for you.
The demand for halfway houses is growing. Often, new halfway houses fill up as soon as they open. This trend is true for just about every type of halfway house. For example, halfway houses for former inmates are much in demand. Why? This is because over the past 2 decades the prison population has grown dramatically. Today the total prison population is about 1.4 million. When inmates are released now, they are more institutionalized than ever because of longer jail terms and fewer early releases. This, in turn, means that more halfway houses are needed to help these former institutionalized inmates transition to normal life after release.
Besides former inmate halfway houses, the halfway houses for recovering addicts and alcoholics are growing as well. Parents and other family members are turning more and more to halfway houses to help their loved ones make the transition from institutionalized treatment to living at home again. These family members need the halfway houses because their busy schedules don't allow them to care for and watch their loved ones during this crucial transition.
