The CSG Justice Center and CSH are hosting a three-session virtual Community of Practice (CoP) focused on strategies that local justice and housing system leaders can use to collaboratively increase housing options for people with complex behavioral health needs leaving incarceration and/or diverted from the justice system. Leaders from each of these sectors will apply as a single community team to participate in the CoP, with up to three additional team members representing funding agencies, elected officials, people with lived experience in the justice system or who have experienced homelessness, or other key partners.
The three CoP sessions are funded by the U.S. Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Assistance.
