Directory aims to help ex-inmates find services

OWENSBORO, Ky. (AP) - The Kentucky Department of Corrections and the state's Department of Protection and Advocacy are releasing a statewide directory for inmates with disabilities aimed at helping those released from prison find food, housing, clothing assistance and employment.

The directory was compiled county-by-county. All 120 Kentucky counties are included in the directory, which will be provided to parole officers, re-entry coordinators and made available at state prisons.

Department of Protection and Permanency official Jan Powe told the Owensboro Messenger-Inquirer that it took a year to compile the directory.

The directory covers everything from housing and food to where to get counseling, a college degree or HIV testing. If a county didn't have a specific service, a state number is included so the person can find a service in another county.
