Sex Offender Housing

The Problems In Finding Housing

Above is a map of the 32808 zip code all of the red areas are prohibited areas for Sex Offenders.  The map is not a complete listing it’s only the areas that are public record.  You would still need to get the address approved by the Probation department and the Orange County Sheriff’s department.  The Sheriff’s department will tell you that you are ultimately responsible for making sure the address is allowed so there is the catch 22 of the approval process, if they can’t keep up with prohibited areas, how are Sex Offenders required to know if the area is restricted.
