SERVICES PLANNED FOR COMMUNITY RESOURCE CENTERS INCLUDE: • Mental Health • Substance Use Treatment • Housing Assistance • Job Training and Employment Services • Legal Services • Education • Parenting and Family Education • Health Education • Community Support Groups • Computer Skills Resources for Reentry Two New Centers Will Offer One-Stop-Shop for Reentry Services In collaboration with other County departments and community-based organizations, Probation will soon open two new community resource centers (CRCs) that will provide a one-stop-shop of resources for adult felony probationers, their families, and community members. The CRCs will offer a wide range of community-based, rehabilitative services with the goal of reducing recidivism and supporting the client’s successful completion of probation supervision. Both locations will feature system navigation services and co- locate traditional probation services including mental health interventions, employment services, arts programing, and substance abuse services. The three-story Probation Reentry Opportunities Center (ROC) on Vermont Avenue in Los Angeles will serve Probation clients and the community. The ROC will also bring several unique opportunities due to its proximity to the University of Southern California School of Social Work services and other area resources. It is scheduled to open in the summer of 2019. A second CRC location will also be part of the $322 million renovation to transform the old Martin Luther King Jr./ Drew Medical Center into a new Behavioral Health Center. As the campus evolves into an innovative hub providing comprehensive, wraparound services for a multitude of health needs, Probation will be one of the services offered in the new complex. The co-location of these services on the medical campus will make it easy for clients to access the diverse array of services necessary for holistic health, facilitating the integration and continuum of care that promotes both physical and mental well-being. The Probation Department has a history of successful collaborations designed to provide reentry services to adult probationers.

Martin Luther King, Jr. Behavioral Health Center WHAT PROBATIONERS SAY ABOUT USING A COMMUNITY RESOURCE CENTER: “I want help with everything, to do the right things, and get off probation.” “I want to be a better person.” “If they had a way for me to get a really good paying job...without judging me because of my background.” L.A.
