    Do you have any resources for residential treatment for adolescent sex offenders with mental health disorders and low cognitive functioning?

    Looking to transfer 16 year od to TN to be closer to family.

    Needs psychiatric medication to manage depression, PTSD and suicidal thoughts and attempts.

    I am a 72 year old veteran. I am disabled and in a wheelchair. I am homeless after being kicked out of our home by ex-wife. I moved to Chattanooga and registered as a sex offender. I am looking for a room, apartment or home to rent. Please help me if you can because no one will rent or lease to a Registered Sex Offender. My crime was in 1998 and was a victimless crime. A FBI agent entrapped me on the internet pretending to be a girl. She asked me to come to Chicago and have sex. I told her no. That I would not have sex with a minor nor would I drive 1000 miles just to have sex. I was charged with “Use of Interstate Commerce to entice a minor to commit a sex act”. I was sentenced to 3 years in Federal Prison which I completed. I was released in 2002 and put on the Sex Offender Registry.

  3. We are a Veteran’s organization located in Knoxville, TN. We are attempting to house two veterans wo are sex offenders. I see that the resources you have listed are in other parts of the state. Do you know of any housing that may be available in the Knoxville area or surrounding areas?
