If the Beacon Network continues to improve and expand, LPSO can refer additional individuals who are aging in place or living with disabilities for services. The work is pilot funded through a Bureau of Justice and Mental Health Collaboration Grant. LPSO’s partnership with Beacon has been active for 15 months, and it began with a planning grant to develop the pre-arrest diversion program.
