Karibu provides individualized, culturally specific stabilization and treatment preparation (STP) services for Black/African American adults (18+) who are involved or at-risk of involvement with the criminal justice system and have behavioral health needs. The program has an outreach team and a supportive housing team supporting 14-20 participants living on-site.
This culturally specific outreach team serves approximately 30-35 clients at any given time. This case load currently consists of clients residing in the community (pre- and post-enrollment) and will soon also include clients living in the Karibu Stabilization for Treatment Preparation program (STP). Community outreach is provided from a large passenger vehicle to allow program staff to work within the community. Once enrolled, Karibu participants have access to seamlessly integrated services delivered by the KCCT if living in the community (for up to 6 months), or in the Karibu STP if living on-site once opened, as outlined below.
Client will be offered a menu of services that they can choose from.
