Family Attachment Interventions
Through Healing Solutions

The FAITHS Throughcare Program is a partnership between California State University San Bernardino and the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department. FAITHS offers comprehensive assistance to all justice-involved participants, their families, and the whole of San Bernardino County utilizing an augmented “throughcare” model of rehabilitation. By addressing the needs of the offender rather than just addressing the individual offense, the goal is to reduce recidivism, improve the communities in which we all live, save taxpayer dollars through reducing correctional costs, and rupture the intergenerational cycle of trauma and incarceration. In addition to offering services to a diverse range of individuals and families, FAITHS and its partners will focus on finding solutions to assist the justice-involved veteran population, the struggles perpetuating homelessness, and racial inequity as a health crisis in San Bernardino County.

Mission Statement

To reduce recidivism, break intergenerational cycles of trauma, create safer communities, and provide hope to families yet to be.

SBCSD data indicates that justice-involved individuals who participated in FAITHS programming, facilitated by graduate student interns from various university partners’ social and behavioral science programs under the guidance of FAITHS licensed clinical service supervisor team, demonstrated a robust 27.1% decrease in their rates of recidivism compared with those who did not participate in FAITHS programming. For our purposes, recidivism is defined as an arrest within 3 years post-release.

SBCSD data from the first C2C Track cohort shows justice-involved individuals that successfully completed all C2C programming also finished their ankle-monitoring without recidivating. Collectively responsible for 22 arrests in a year now reduced to 0.

More impacts will be published in the future!
