Lasting Change


The mission of Lasting Change is to reduce Orange County Jail recidivism by providing a variety of effective and appropriate rehabilitative services to our medium-high risk to re-offend population reentering our Orange County communities. In addition, this program will aim to provide supportive services to their family members, loved ones, and victims who have been negatively impacted by their choices and behaviors.


This program is being proposed with the intent to provide full wrap-around services to inmates leaving our county jail system. Family and outside support systems are key components to any client’s success; and therefore, we propose to implement Lasting Change as a full wrap-around program with the following principles in mind:

  • Family Engagement/Reunification (when applicable)
  • Team-based approach
  • Collaboration
  • Community-based
  • Culturally Competent
  • Individualized and appropriate case management based on client needs
  • Strength-based
  • Outcome-based Photo of inmates in classroom
