I'm looking for apartments or private owners who will give a felon a 2nd chance and lease to them. My felony is 8 years old. I have a good job. I'm looking for a 3-5 bedroom apartment/house/condo/townhome in the Winston Salem/Kernersville/Clemmons area. If you know of any apartments that are felon friendly of and private owners please feel free to contact me.

I do think you would you would have a better chance with smaller, private landlords, and if you have good credit, and a stable job history (which you mention).

One recommendation that comes to mind is to contact Goodwill Industries of Northwest NC at (336) 724-3621. Since their focus is on job placement for people who may have had a felony in their past (that's one of their main programs that the thrift stores support), I'm sure they have also worked with people who in that situation who are also in need of housing, so they should have a good lead, if not several, of landlords who could give you a chance. I hope everything works out for you.
