Reentry Housing Resources Map

The Department of Mental Health, Department of Corrections and the Governor's Committee to End Homelessness, have collaborated to create an interactive map of housing resources in Missouri for people reentering the community from incarceration. The map is an ongoing process to collect information about every program in Missouri that provides permanent housing, transitional housing, and emergency shelter, and so can also be used to locate resources for persons experiencing homelessness generally.

The map's search function is county-based. To find resources, choose the appropriate county by clicking on the map or choose a county from the drop-down menu in the lower left corner. Choosing a county shows all the resources entered for that county. You can limit the results to programs most appropriate to your needs by clicking boxes in the list on the right. For instance, limit your search to programs for women only by clicking the "Serves females only" box.

Any agency with appropriate programs located in Missouri can add their program information to the map, subject to editing and approval by DMH Housing staff. Agencies with multiple programs of different types should make separate entries for each program, e.g., one entry for a permanent housing program and one for a transitional housing program; or one for a shelter serving only men and another for a shelter serving only families.
