 In three  years two out of three people are rearrested and more than 50% have had contact with the system again. We believe there are three main contributing factors that increase system involvement.

1

HOMELESSNESS

75% of people who experience housing instability experience substance abuse problems and 63% of women are homeless due to domestic violence.

2

UNEMPLOYMENT

Almost two thirds of homeless adults are unemployed. S4C provides employment navigation as part of our service package.

3
