Kim Kardashian’s clout wasn't enough to secure housing for former inmate Matthew Charles

Kim Kardashian has made it her mission to fight for prison reform, and she’s learning all about the housing challenges former inmates face when they're released. When Kardashian heard Matthew Charles was denied an apartment due to his prior record, the reality TV star stepped up to pay five years worth of rent and act as his personal reference. But last week, she took to social media to report that Charles’ rental applications were still denied despite her generous offer.
