Supportive Release Center
Why the Supportive Release Center? A Caring Solution at a Critical Time
TASC’s Supportive Release Center (SRC) helps to break cycles of incarceration, while offering hope and health for vulnerable individuals.
Most SRC participants are homeless or lack solid living arrangements. Eight out of 10 reported mental health or substance use conditions, and half reported an urgent need for healthcare. Without access to care, hospitalizations and costs soar, and people struggle to build stability in the community and stay out of jail.
The SRC offers a brief overnight stay and linkage to services for men leaving jail who are suffering from substance use disorders, mental health conditions, homelessness, and other complex issues. Since its launch in 2017, the SRC has served nearly 1,000 individuals.
As part of our services for the SRC, TASC provides:
· Transportation from the jail to the nearby SRC
· Assistance from on-site care coordinators in accessing healthcare services, health insurance,
identification, and other supports such as housing, food, job training, and legal aid resources
· Continuity of existing prescribed medications and other treatment
· Attention to basic survival and safety needs
· Engagement in pro-social activities, such as work and positive peer support
