Why It Matters

Involvement in the criminal justice system can carry lifelong impacts on the health, safety, and well-being of individuals, families and neighborhoods. Many individuals with justice involvement are also impacted by poverty, trauma, mental illness and/or substance abuse.

Purpose

We are a multi-agency model serving people in the criminal justice system with diversion options, connecting them to community services such as mental health and substance abuse treatment, transportation, career, public assistance, education, and legal. The goal is to provide a comprehensive model where individuals receive a foundation that will lead them to a productive, self-sufficient, healthy life.

Goal

Increase public safety by reducing individual criminal justice involvement through addressing issues directly related to an individual's likelihood to re-offend and commit another crime.

Strategies

  • Ensure accountability while addressing issues that lead to criminal behavior and activity.
  • Without duplication of services, bridge gaps in the existing community resources.
  • Create seamless linkages with systems that people navigate – including health care, housing, education, workforce, family services, law enforcement and the courts.
  • Take a holistic approach to facilitating individual, family, neighborhood, and community wellness.
