CBPP’s Connecting the Dots project advances policies to improve health care delivery and other services for people with significant physical, mental, and substance use conditions, including many individuals who are reentering the community from the criminal justice system. In addition to health care, these individuals, often need affordable housing linked to support services, and the systems offering these services need to be well-coordinated. Better coordination can not only improve lives but can save money.
