Join TPCH and the Pima County Criminal Justice Reform Unit for a Community Forum on JULY 13, 2021- 1:00PM-3:00PM
The Justice and Homelessness Connection- A Community Forum
People incarcerated more than one time are 13 times more likely to experience homelessness than the general population according to the Urban Institute. The homelessness-jail cycle has devastating consequences for individuals and families and poses considerable costs to the community.
Join TPCH and the Pima County Criminal Justice Reform Unit for this two-hour community forum exploring the connection between criminal justice and homelessness. The forum will include a background on the case for greater collaboration to support people leaving incarceration and lessons learned from current efforts to coordinate post-release housing and support. During the session, a moderated panel including representatives from local justice systems, Pima County’s Criminal Justice Reform Unit, organizations providing re-entry supportive services, and community members who have experienced the homelessness-jail cycle themselves will share insight, expertise, and opportunities for greater system collaboration.
This community forum is the first in a series of dialogues related to improving coordination between the TPCH Coordinated Entry system, housing and supportive services, and the criminal justice system. Please join us as we work together to develop effective strategies to break the cycle.
