Quick Facts

Current Phase
Term of Project

Over a five-year period, the Just in Reach (JIR) PFS will connect homeless, frequently incarcerated individuals in LA County Jail to jail in-reach services and, ultimately, to 300 permanent supportive housing slots. The goals of JIR PFS will be to improve the overall health and well-being of participants, and to increase public and private collaboration to improve the lives of some of the most vulnerable LA County residents with a focus on two metrics of success: reduced rates of re-incarceration and ending the cycle of homelessness. Currently, the project is in a pilot phase which launched in July 2016.
