The Alameda County Justice Project is designed to reduce recidivism among the 1170(h) realignment population with a history of recidivism.  The service provision is comprised of “24/7” wraparound services, including access to substance use disorder treatment, employment training, adult education, mental health services, intensive case management and housing assistance, delivered as an integrated system of services led by a Relentless Life Coach that has their own lived experience. The program has been developed and spearheaded by the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office in collaboration with the Probation Department, the Sheriff’s Office, and the County Administrator’s Office. The Harvard Kennedy School Government Performance Lab has been working with the DA’s office since 2015 to develop the project, and the County is pleased to have secured programmatic assistance, fundraising, and fiscal management provided by Third Sector Capital Partners,. The project has secured $1.25 million from the California Board of State and Community Corrections (BSCC) to serve as end-payer support for anticipated success payments.
