The Board of Supervisors recently authorized the Probation Department to accept funding from the California Health Facility Financing Authority Community Services Infrastructure (CHFFA CSI) Grant Program for the purpose of creating a Jail Diversion Treatment and Resource Center (JDTRC) from a grant totaling $1,690,542.
The County is using the grant funds to renovate 5,591 square feet of the first floor of 711 G Street, which is in close proximity to the Main Jail and the Sacramento Superior Court.
This project will create a comprehensive County jail diversion and resource center for Mental Health Diversion Court participants 18 years and older who are living with mental illness and/or co-occurring substance use disorder, and/or suffering from trauma. Most importantly, the project will divert individuals from jails and prisons and provide mental health treatment, substance use disorder treatment, and trauma centered services.
The JDTRC will provide easily accessible, community-based, individualized support services and linkages for adult individuals in a one-stop location. Participants, including those recently released from custody, will be able to receive a myriad of services including:
- Mental health evaluations and linkage to services
- Onsite therapeutic classes
- Referrals to community-based service providers
- Contact with a probation officer
- Onsite meetings with legal representation
The Probation Department, acting as the lead agency for the County, began working on the CHFFA CSI Grant application in March of 2019. CHFFA's Board selected Sacramento County to receive the grant in March of 2020. While the project's timeline was greatly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and resulting stay at home order, progress on the JDTRC project has continued.
The JDTRC is anticipated to be open to the public on July 1, 2021.
