NEW ANNOUNCEMENT

Join us to get the latest information on the IST Infrastructure Project along with answers to your questions. Office Hours will be held twice per month, and we will be having quest speakers join us periodically. Everyone is invited and all questions are welcome! 

Who is the housing for?

The housing serves individuals charged with a felony who have been deemed IST and identified by DSH as eligible for diversion or community-based restoration services.

What kind of housing is needed?

Residences can be locked or unlocked homelike residences with supportive and wraparound services, such as Supported Transitional Housing, Board and Care, Adult Care Facility, Recovery Residences, Social Rehabilitation, and other supportive housing facilities.

Why are more community based, residential treatment homes needed?

More housing with access to behavioral health services and diversion and CBR programs means that more Californians are diverted from the criminal justice system or restored to competency.

What are the infrastructure options?

Funds can be used to purchase or put a down payment on a property, rehabilitation, new construction, and/or furniture and minor equipment needed for occupancy and service delivery
