People recently released from the Door County jail or face mental health or substance abuse issues have few options for temporary housing. That's according to a League of Women Voters-Door County study. The Door County Jail recently started Operation Fresh Start to help residents line up housing and employment prior to release. But the sole transitional housing facility has only three-bedrooms and a long waiting list. Door County District Attorney Colleen Nordin agrees with the study's finding that more transitional options are needed.
Clients are limited to a stay of 60-days at the current transitional housing facility and are electronically monitored during that time.
