Bridging the Gap
Treatment Accountability for Safer Communities (TASC) of the Capital District provides alternatives to incarceration (ATI) services to reduce detention and recidivism as well as promote safer communities.
Since 1984, we save been supporting this mission by providing specialized case management and technical assistance services, bridging the gap between the criminal justice and treatment systems.
Especially for individuals who are detained, there is a gap in access to treatment as an alternative to incarceration, a need for specialized case management to navigate across and work within multiple siloed systems (criminal justice, treatment, collateral), and a necessity for individualized wraparound services to resolve barriers to treatment.
In our 35th year of operation, TASC of the Capital District is proud to be a community-based collaborator with justice stakeholders including the Rensselaer County Correctional Facility, the Rensselaer County Probation Department and the Rensselaer County Recovery Court with support from he Bureau of Justice Assistance, the County of Rensselaer, NYS Division of Criminal Justice Services and the NYS Legislature.
As a founding member of the statewide Alternatives to Incarceration (ATI) Coalition, we support ATI public policy advocacy and the demonstrative ATI services provided by the Coalition members in each respective region. We look forward to continuing to build collaborative relationships with criminal justice stakeholders and community-based providers, focusing on impactful case management services and bridging the gap in access to OASAS and OMH services for the justice-involved population.
