And that's what made him a candidate for the Office of Diversion and Reentry's housing program. If follow-up visits yield what they're designed to, the man will move into temporary housing when he gets out of jail, and then on to a permanent apartment, where his rent will be subsidized by L.A.

ACEs Connection launches Cooperative of Communities

The ACEs Connection Cooperative of Communities launches today. We want to continue to contribute to the ACEs movement for as long as it takes to create a worldwide healing-centered culture based on ACEs science.

Police Reform Should Include Implementing ACEs Science

Becky Haas ·
When I first learned about ACEs science, I was working for the local police department as the Director of a crime prevention program.

Together we reduced crime by 40% in one neighborhood, and pioneered a first probation program of its kind in Tennessee to reduce recidivism. At the end of the grant in...
