Reentry Services

L.A. CADA's Reentry Services are a crucial support system for individuals transitioning back into society after being in jail or prison. Many of these individuals face substance use and mental health issues, so the program focuses on expanding treatment options for these problems. The program goes beyond just treatment by offering counseling, workshops to learn new skills, job training, and mental health support. The goal is to give individuals the tools they need to rebuild their lives, stay sober, and lower the chances of going back to jail. Support continues even after reentry, helping people reconnect with their families and communities. Through this all-encompassing approach, L.A. CADA's Reentry Services aims not only to address immediate challenges but also to promote long-term success and resilience for participants.

  • CPMP - Our Community Prisoner Mother Program (CPMP), funded by the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, allows eligible pregnant inmates and mothers to live with their children in a supervised, non-traditional prison environment. This innovative program focuses on strengthening the mother-child bond and aiding the mothers' reintegration into society. It provides a secure and nurturing environment that encourages the development of strong family relationships, reduces the likelihood of reoffending, and mitigates the impact of incarceration on children. CPMP addresses a range of needs, including emotional stability, parenting skills, and educational and vocational development. It also tackles substance abuse and related behavioral and psychological issues. The program prepares participants for post-release life through job and education planning, and offers gender-responsive, trauma-informed care tailored to women in the criminal justice system. CPMP provides comprehensive healthcare and wellness services, child development programs, and access to education for children, ensuring holistic support for both mothers and their children.

  • Intensive Case Management - L.A. CADA's Intensive Case Management Services (ICMS) offer a comprehensive and individualized approach to support clients facing complex challenges. The process begins with a detailed personal assessment, identifying each client's specific needs in areas such as substance abuse, mental health, housing, and more. This assessment lays the groundwork for setting collaborative and realistic goals that align with the client's personal ambitions. Clients are then guided to a range of relevant services, including medical, therapeutic, educational, and employment opportunities, to address their needs holistically. Regular check-ins are crucial in this process, allowing case managers to track progress, tackle new challenges, and adjust goals or methods as needed. These case managers also advocate for clients, facilitating smooth interactions with various service providers and ensuring access to essential resources. In times of crisis, case managers provide immediate support to ensure client safety and stability. The goal of ICMS extends beyond resolving immediate issues; case managers remain involved to ensure long-term success, continuing their support even after initial objectives have been met. This enduring commitment underscores the program's focus on achieving lasting well-being for its clients.
