Home Is Where Stability Is

Everyone deserves Safe, Secure, and Clean AFFORDABLE HOUSING.

At Once Incarcerated Anonymous, we understand how hard it is to reenter society after imprisonment. We believe in providing holistic resources for formerly incarcerated civilians and their families to reduce recidivism and promote zero-entry for children. ​ OIA exist for the sole purpose of providing wellness communities for formerly incarcerated people (F.I.P) and Justice Impacted families.

We are a Housing Advocacy, Community Development Consulting and Community Economic Development nonprofit working to End Housing Discrimination.


Because yes, even people who have criminal records deserve a home.
