QLA employs social workers who offer our clients a wide range of services. The goal is to help resolve criminal cases in a productive way. These experts conduct assessments to determine what service needs are required from our clients. Services include:
- Alternatives to incarceration: referrals to outpatient and residential treatment programs are made in lieu of jail time.
- Rehabilitation referrals: anger management, substance abuse, DWI, batterer’s intervention, parenting skills, youth programs, vocational/educational programs and homeless shelters.
- Pre-pleading and pre-sentencing memoranda: These reports are submitted to the court with recommendations that the case be resolved favorably.
- Continued Monitoring: Social workers also act as liaisons between the Department of Corrections mental health programs, other community agencies and QLA clients, addressing the continuing mental health needs of our clients.
