The purpose of the program is to provide an alternative to incarceration to the mutual benefit of the Court System, the client and the community. In achieving this goal, this program endeavors to:

1.) Educate the Judicial System in the value of specialized placements within the community;
2.) Educate the community to the monetary and social return attained from court-directed client referrals;
3.) Reduce recidivism by training clients in community service/activities;
4.) Communicate with other alternative programs to identify and develop similar purposes and methods of achievement;
5.) Provide information to other city and counties within California and nationwide when requested, to the advancement of their programs for alternative sentencing.
