Mission

Redemption Housing is a transformational recovery organization that offers faith-based programming and community support to Philadelphians coming out of incarceration and homelessness, guiding them toward healthy and meaningful lives.

We seek to bring God's healing and restoration to those affected by incarceration and homelessness, holistically serving them as they transition back into the community, while providing a safe space where they can connect with social services, find meaningful employment, and locate long-term housing. Our vision is to be a network of recovery homes that provide safe, stable, structured, and sober living arrangements. Our residents will be proud of where they live, receive our ongoing support, and journey with each other into the care of the community.

Locust House

Locust House is a fully-furnished home in West Philadelphia with the capacity to house up to 3 residents. At Locust House, Redemption Housing offers a “Next Level Housing” program to support sustained reintegration for men released from incarceration within the past five years. Given the stringent housing limitations placed on returning citizens in Philadelphia, many people with convictions have been rendered homeless, and this program provides a bridge to fully independent living. Residents can remain in this program for up to two years. They are required to be working or in school and must remain clean and sober.

Population(s) Served
Ex-offenders

Barnabas House is a 12-month transitional housing program specifically designed for returning citizens directly exiting incarceration. We believe that people have an inborn desire to connect with those around them and be a part of something greater than themselves, but returning citizens are often excluded from making these connections due to the mistakes of their past. Barnabas House is their place of connection in the community. Residents receive life skill coaching and support from a house chaplain.
