Parole on Paper but No Way to Pay
I was close to seeing parole for my third time. Even if I would make parole, I have no place to go. The half-way houses in Texas want money before you parole there. How am I supposed to pay them if I've been incarcerated for the past 4 years in a state that doesn't pay their inmates to work? I've seen numerous people make parole, not have a place to go, and remain here for 15 month after they were granted parole! What kind of sense does that make? But Texas is good with it because it looks like they are using their parole and they are still collecting money from the government for said prisoner. My time for release is coming soon and I have no place to go or any type of plan. I'm more than capable of working, but I need some help getting started.
