CalAIM Guide for Justice-involved

The California Advancing and Innovating Medi-Cal (CalAIM) Program is the state’s new plan for re-envisioning and reforming the Medi-Cal program that provides health and behavioral health services for nearly one in three Californians. CalAIM offers a unique and unprecedented opportunity to improve the quality of medical and behavioral health care for the most medically vulnerable and complex populations through a broad array of policy changes intended to align and improve services.

On January 1, 2023, justice-involved individuals who are released from custody and who experience homelessness, serious mental illness (SMI), substance use disorders (SUD), or medical co-morbidities will be for these services. Medi-Cal managed care plans (MCPs) will receive funding through DHCS and will be
responsible for administering key elements of the CalAIM program.

Funding dries up for program aimed at LA’s ‘sickest of the sick

KCRW, Hosted by Steve Chiotakis, May 09, 2022

There is a pathway for people suffering from mental health issues to get out of the jail population and into supportive housing. It’s through a 2015 program called ODR Housing from the Office of Diversion and Reentry.

ODR currently has 2,200 beds, which are occupied, but LA County has not provided funding for the program to expand. So ODR Housing has not been able to accept a new client in over a year.

Gascón supporters, foes exchange barbs

The Signal of Santa Clarita Valley, May 3, 2022, by Caleb Lunetta

Quoted in the article:

From LARRP Partner Susan Burton: “I have worked with George Gascón to create better victim services to create better policies to not criminalize addiction and mental health and to just transform our criminal justice system,” said Burton. “I believe, along with all of you, that there’s a lot of work ahead of us. And I believe in George Gascón heading that work.”

From LARRP Co-founder and Steering Committee Member Lynne Lyman: “I’ve seen all these scare tactics before when the Drug Policy Alliance won treatment instead of incarceration at the ballot in 2001 or when we legalized cannabis in 2016,” said Lynne Lyman, a justice advocate working in L.A. County. “We heard the same: The sky is falling, the fear-mongering about drug addict criminals getting into our communities.”

April was an incredibly busy month for our policy work and we are excited to share with you all of the vital work we have been engaged in!
Assembly Bill 2383: LARRP has officially signed on to co-sponsor Assembly Bill 2383, the Statewide Ban-the-Box Initiative, written by Assemblymember Reggie Jones Sawyer. We are working alongside the Anti-Recidivism Coalition on this bill which will ensure that there is a statewide “Ban-The-Box” initiative for housing applications.

The aim of  of the Community Safety Committee is to:

  • SEED change by identifying drivers of violence;
  • NURTURE the work by inclusively engaging a broad and diverse group of stakeholders in a balanced and democratic conversation about approaches to addressing violence;
  • HARVEST the fruit of the work by defining an approach to systems change that can be implemented, evaluated, and shared
