It is sometimes important for sheltering and housing purposes in outreach to understand registration due to PC290 and PC288 geographic restrictions (also might be helpful as a CES field for matching)
Alma Vasquez, RTFH
44:34
I don't know if this will be covered, but how can a housing provider assist a client who does not know if they have certain charges on their criminal record? Helping a client know their record is helpful when client's prepare for applying to housing, employment, etc.
Maddie Nation, Homebase (she/her)
46:15
Great point, Holly! Criminal records are not just useful for screenings, but can also be important housing case management and matchmaking tools for understanding geographic restrictions for specific felonies or probation requirements.
Matt Wechter
47:11
Alma: A client can contact the Public Defender Office Fresh Start Unit and fill out an application for assistance. We will pull the entire criminal history record from Dept of Justice, and also create a plan for criminal record relief if eligible. http://bit.ly/freshstartsd.
Alma Vasquez, RTFH

What is a good resource for a provider to have in their toolbox to see if any felonies etc no longer should effect their ability to be accepted for housing employment etc ( I don't know if this is up to the property management company, employer etc). Is their a resource that dictates what the law allows so as to help client's not be discriminated against due to their criminal record?
Jonathan Herrera
54:47
Expungement
Alma Vasquez, RTFH- CoC Program Coordinator
57:10
Thank you. That makes sense that the initial resource would also be able to response to expungements, current laws etc.
Holly Herring
57:36
Important to note, Jonathan, in California we do not have true expungement - we hav dismissal
Holly Herring

72 hr arraignment timeline is different if booked Thursday/Friday or for individuals that are booked for probation/parole violations.
Matt Wechter
01:17:58
Note: On most misdemeanors, if they don't file charges within that 72 hours after arrest, they have up to a year to decide to file the charges later. For felonies, they have longer to do so.
Lily Harvey
01:18:09
Thanks, Jonathan! Great local info to add and certainly relevant for folks trying to coordinate warm handoffs, etc.
Maddie Nation, Homebase (she/her)

Have "High risk facilities" been granted the authority by the state to require COVID-19 testing for clients. There was a recent public health order for employees in these setting but I have not seen anything regarding clients.
Lily Harvey
01:32:40
Great question, Jonathan. We will get it in a minute. Thanks!
Lily Harvey
01:37:29
Major theme of this workshop series: warm handoffs and connections.
Rebecca Mayeaux
01:37:51
Question: wouldn't someone be considered homeless upon release if they were homeless when entering?
Lily Harvey
01:39:40
Rebecca - did that answer your question?
Maddie Nation, Homebase (she/her)
01:39:49
Great question, Rebecca! Like Kathy just said, it depends on the length of time the person was held in jail or prison. After 90 days in an institution (including jail or prison), individuals will lose their homelessness status (even if they don’t have anywhere to go). They would then need to stay a night on the streets or in a shelter to regain that status.
Lily Harvey
01:40:09
Re eligibility: a real call to action for providers on how people are screened based on criminal history info.
Lily Harvey
01:44:18

Holly Herring

I believe this is more evidence that supports we need to rely less on uniformed officers doing street outreach. If the people in need of assistance avoid law enforcement how helpful can that presence be? How hurtful can that presence be? Perhaps more lived experience experts and peer supports in legal and homeless outreach areas is what’s actually needed. Thank you, Johnny, for doing the emotional labor and sharing it with us. I hope we take it to heart.
