How One County Screens and Connects People in Jail to Housing

Criminal justice leaders across the country are working with homeless service providers to help prevent people from experiencing homelessness when they are released from incarceration. These groups have also been working to reduce encounters with the justice system and other public systems, while promoting stability in the community.
