Undoubtedly, individuals who are re-entering the community after incarceration face an array of barriers. As a response to such barriers, HOPICS took the mantel and implemented the Re-Entry Advocacy Developed for You (R.E.A.D.Y.) fair. In partnership with the Los Angeles County Probation Department Day Reporting Center and CDCR's Inglewood-Huntington Park Parole Units, the R.E.A.D.Y. fair provided participants with the ability to connect to essential services on-site.
Assembly Bill (AB) 109:
The AB 109 employment services program, in collaboration with HealthRIGHT 360, is designed to provide a comprehensive employment assessment, 16 hours of employment training, and job placement to individuals under post release community supervision. To be eligible, participants must be referred by their probation officer.
