Returning Home Saint Paul: A Beyond Backgrounds Partnership

Residents who are physically, emotionally, and financially secure, and who are connected to community supports, are less likely to become either an offender or victim of crime. A cross departmental City staff team worked with the Harvard Bloomberg Innovation Track team to use a human-centered design process to develop the Returning Home St. Paul (RHSP) pilot program, one of Mayor Melvin Carter’s Community First Public Safety Initiatives.

What is Returning Home Saint Paul (RHSP)?  RHSP is a partnership between the City of Saint Paul,  HousingLink and Ujamaa Place designed to help successfully house residents returning to the community from incarceration.
