Help people who have gotten addicted to drugs access support or need assistance with mental illness so they have a chance to return to work and regain their independence. Provide supportive service to people incarcerated to help them return to work to be productive members of society at the end of their term instead of returning to jail at great expense to taxpayers and the detriment of their families.
