I was a resident in recovery at Lebanon Rescue Mission in Lebanon, PA for several months recently. The directors running this place - Chris Smith and Paul Topping - are making a significant portion of their salaries by housing ex-cons long-term. Other Rescue Missions and Salvation Army locations do the same thing. The Bureau of Prisons pays more than $50 per day to house each ex-offender. Violent offenders and crack heads may place other residents and the community at large at risk, because the directors tend to cater to the ex-cons, cover for them and keep problems under wraps. They are allowed to stay up to 9 months. Other homeless people are lucky to get a couple of days.
