Amity Los Angeles Hosts MCRP Summit

By | Up Coming Events | No Comments

Amity Los Angeles Hosts MCRP Summit

On February 16th, 2017 from 10am to 12pm Amity Foundation’s, Amistad de Los Angeles campus, will host the upcoming Male Community Reentry Program (MCRP) summit which is designed to provide or arrange linkage to a range of community-based, rehabilitative services that assist with substance use disorders, mental health care, medical care, employment, education, housing, family reunification, and social support. The MCRP is designed to help participants successfully re-enter the community from prison and reduce recidivism.

The event will be attended by MCRP providers statewide and will focus on new directives, feedback from providers and discussing challenges.

Amity Foundation’s Amistad campus was selected as host of the summit to showcase for providers it’s exemplar electronic systems, (many providers are still ramping up), integrated on-site health care, and the unusual and highly successful job placement program. Amity’s non-medical model and all inclusive environment setting assists inmates to decompress from institutions and quickly acclimate to becoming productive members of the larger community. Amity’s model approach has proven to be a driving force in reducing recidivism for over 20 years.

The MCRP program is the newest project from the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR’s) division of rehabilitative programs.

Naya Arbiter gives her presentation, “The Medicine Wheel of Empowerment: Teaching Community in the Therapeutic Community” on Sept. 22nd. 

Rod Mullen presents, “Can TCs survive big pharma and integrated health care?” Read More
