Paris Hilton To Open A Home For Former Prisoners

Paris Hilton, who is set to be released from California's Century Regional Detention Center in Lynwood tomorrow (26.06.07), has spoken to jail doctors and officials about setting up a safe house for newly released inmates.

Paris is quoted by E! News as saying: "I'm lucky enough that when I leave prison I have a home to go to and a family that loves me. A lot of girls in here don't have that option. They go back to the streets.

"I want to help build a transitional home so that when inmates leave here they have somewhere to go. These women just keep coming back because they have no home to go to."

Paris, 26, says her facility would offer former prisoners somewhere to stay while they look for jobs and try to find their families.

She explained: "It will be a place for them to go get food, clothes and get them up on their feet, especially the mothers. It's just a really bad cycle. If we stop it now, we can make our community a better place."
