A New Approach to Community Safety and Wellness

Rethink Arrest

We cannot arrest our way out of the problems facing our communities. We focus on the root causes of many of the issues our communities face to help people become stable over time.

Support Wellness

We don’t wait until someone is arrested. We meet people where they are and do not stop working with them when they experience setbacks. PAD social service providers provide high quality, culturally-competent care.

Improve Quality of Life

If an individual is accepted into PAD, they will not be arrested at that time. Instead, the Care Navigation team will work with them to meet any immediate basic needs and create a wellness plan for emergency housing, mental health treatment, drug treatment, job training, and more.
