Learn More: Providing Access to Housing After Incarceration

​​Incarceration in the U.S. has profound flaws and consequences, but there are many people doing life-changing work to lessen its harm. In this special episode, Lemonada co-founder Stephanie Wittels Wachs sits down with two individuals whose organizations aim to increase access to housing for people who have been involved in the justice system. Stephanie speaks with Leslie Credle, founder and executive director of Justice 4 Housing in Boston, and Bernadette Butler, director of The Homecoming Project, an initiative out of Impact Justice in Northern California. The three discuss the realities faced by justice-involved individuals in today’s society, and how housing is both a human right and a crucial place to start when trying to improve lives.

You can find Justice 4 Housing at and @justice4housing on Instagram and YouTube. The Homecoming Project can be found through its parent organization at and @impactjustice on Instagram and Facebook.

Thank you to both of these organizations for making this episode possible.
