The mission of the Supportive Connections program is to provide social services to assist people in need from becoming involved or reinvolved with the criminal justice system. We work with Ann Arbor-area service providers to address some of the potential causes of criminal justice-system involvement, such as substance abuse issues, mental health challenges, and housing insecurity. Our focus is on bridging local service providers to eliminate gaps in assistance together, in order to serve community members in need.

Supportive Connections focuses on an individualized, client-centered approach to addressing needs. In a non-judgmental and non-coercive environment, we tailor service connections to a participant's individual situation. Supportive Connections is not court or law-enforcement associated, and participation is voluntary. As such, community awareness and involvement is important.

​Individuals Seeking Supportsupportive_connections_final_logo.jpg

Supportive Connections is available to serve all individuals who have a connection to Ann Arbor — living in the city (stably housed, transitionally housed, or homeless), working within the city (including unreported income), or attending Ann Arbor Schools (self or child). Regardless of level of need — and recognizing the unique challenges in our community — housing status and financial ability to pay will not be barriers to receiving services. Individuals who would like more information or who want to request assistance may email [email protected] or call 734.794.6934.

​Supportive Connections also welcomes participant referrals from the entire community. The referring person/organization will remain confidential and will not be disclosed to the potential participant.
