My Loved One is Incarcerated in IDOC - Housing Form
Illinois is taking precautions to stop the spread of COVID-19 in prisons. Although nothing is for certain, it is possible that one of these efforts will include releasing a SMALL number of people who are incarcerated.

Be aware that there will be many limitations on who might be released other than housing. We don't know who or how many people will be released. MOST people will NOT be released, even if they have housing. Please keep this in mind, including when talking to your loved one. However, individuals who are otherwise flagged for possible release might be more likely to be released if they have some where to go.  At this point, it seems like elderly and medically vulnerable people who are serving nonviolent crimes are the most likely to be released.

If your loved one or family member is incarcerated in the Illinois Department of Corrections, and you are willing to have your loved one return to your home, please fill out the form below.

If you have more than one incarcerated loved one, please fill out a separate form for each person. If there are multiple addresses where your loved one can stay, please fill out a separate form for each address.


Please note that if your loved one will need to register on the Illinois Sex Offender Registry upon release, they may have housing restrictions (such as not living in a household with children under 18 and not living within 500 feet of a park, school, or daycare facility).
