Here to Help
Leaving jail and returning to the community can be exciting and overwhelming.
At Justice Related Services, our team works tirelessly to help adults with serious mental illness navigate the forensic system.
JRS is your advocate, when all other bridges have been burned. Our case managers and peer specialists meet you where you are, whether currently incarcerated or navigating re-entry.
We believe recovery in mental health is real. We believe successful reintegration into the community is achievable.
We practice a person-centered approach of support and encourage you to use your own strengths in achieving success and independence.
In 2021, JRS was able to guide 85 individuals out of incarceration into the community with re-entry plans.
JRS also diverted 35 individuals from jail and instead they were able to receive the mental health treatment they needed.
