Our Jail Transition Program (JTP) was created in 2016 to provide a Continuum of Care in Utah County for inmates returning to society after incarceration. The JTP filled a gap in services in our community to address the high recidivism rate for individuals involved in the criminal justice system. Funding from the Justice Reinvestment Initiative (JRI) provided the means to expand our jail services and address the mental health needs of these individuals and enable them to make a successful transition from jail back into the community.
The JTP Office is located at:
Food and Care Coalition
299 East 900 South
Provo, UT 84606
Who is Eligible?
JTP services are offered to those individuals who are currently serving time in the Utah County Jail and who will be released within the next 3 months, OR who have been released within the past 6 weeks. JTP staff will evaluate and prioritize those who lack resources in the community, making it very hard to make a successful transition from jail.
Participants must have a diagnosable mental illness such as Depression, Anxiety, PTSD, Schizophrenia, etc. and no medical insurance.
For clients with Medicaid or another insurance plan: referrals will be made to other WBH programs for follow up services. The JTP program provides services to those without medical insurance.

**Beginning in February 2022 Walk-In Intakes will be from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm Monday thru Friday. Medicare clients should come on Tuesday or Thursday. Plan to arrive early as Intake slots are filled on a first come, first served basis.
