03/13/2018 Catholic Charities Awarded funding for Jail Diversion

WENATCHEE - Catholic Charities Serving Central Washington has been awarded funding from the State of Washington for jail diversion mental health services. The Catholic Charities Diversion Team provides active outreach services to Chelan-Douglas law enforcement agencies and area jails in contact with individuals in need of support or services. The goal is to prevent incarceration, by providing access to mental health care, which includes crisis follow-up and crisis response, post-booking diversion, and support transitioning out of the jail. The funding will allow for the addition of four mental health professionals/case manager positions and a project lead, as well as funding for housing and other support to encourage wellness, recovery, and community stabilization.
