REACH Reentry Program
The Reentry Care Coordination Team (RCCT) provides comprehensive transitional reentry care coordination services to adults transitioning out of the suburban jails in South and East King County and supporting reentry from the Maleng Regional Justice Center. The team focuses on providing individualized services to adults who are experiencing behavioral health challenges (substance use and/or mental health), need an intensive level of community-based support, and may be experiencing homelessness. The program goals are to connect with individuals while in custody to ensure a seamless transition from the criminal legal system to successful engagement with community-based services, ultimately reducing further involvement with the criminal legal system.
