As a member of a County Reentry Task Force, this is a much needed change to the current limitations. Many of the people reentering to our County are in need of housing, medical and behavioral health services. This will help with their transition and integration into the community. This will also assist with community safety by reducing potential return to criminal activity motivated either by an illness, need for funds to purchase medication and/or lack of support through the transition to the community.
