The Jail Transition Program (JTP) was created in 2016 to provide care for inmates in Utah County 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 available to:
Individuals that are currently serving time in the Utah County Jail and will get released within the next three months.
Inmates who have gotten released within the past six weeks.
JTP staff will evaluate and prioritize those who need resources in the community, making it very hard to transition from jail.
Participants must have a diagnosable mental illness such as Depression, Anxiety, PTSD, Schizophrenia, etc., and no medical insurance.
If you have Medicaid or another insurance plan: you will be referred to the other WBH programs for follow-up services. The JTP program provides its services to those without medical insurance.
Walk-in Times (No appointment needed)
Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Friday 8:30 am to 11:30 am
**Walk-In Intakes will be from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm Monday thru Friday. Medicare clients should come on Tuesday or Thursday. Arrive early as Intake slots get filled fast on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Few intakes are at the jail. Most of the Intakes are during the Walk-In Times at the Food and Care Coalition. If you’ve gotten released within the past six weeks, you are also eligible for this program and the intake times.
