REdisCOVERY Program

Rediscovery Program

REdisCOVERY does outreach to homeless camps and other areas where those experiencing homelessness spend time. We generally do not run names or seek arrests as we are building rapport and offering services. What we do is called "persistent engagement."

What is Your Community Change Program?

The Olympic Peninsula Community Clinic (OPCC) REdisCOVERY program is comprised of an inter-disciplinary team that provides outreach, navigation, service linkage, case management, and medical & behavioral health care in Clallam and Kitsap counties. The Arrest and Jail Alternatives (AJA) portion of the REdisCOVERY program provides intensive case management (inclusive of all facets of the program at large) for those individuals in the community who have had, or are likely to have, frequent interactions with law enforcement and/or interface with the criminal justice system. REdisCOVERY partners with local law enforcement agencies, including Port Angeles Police Department (PAPD), Sequim Police Department (SPD), and Clallam County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) as well as Port Angeles Fire Department (PAFD) Community Para-medicine and Poulsbo Fire CARES. The over-arching goal of the REdisCOVERY program is to provide access to services for the underserved members of the communities we work in. This access to service, in turn, reduces interactions with law enforcement and the criminal justice system, reduces reliance on emergency medical service, and decreases inappropriate use of hospital emergency departments.

The REdisCOVERY team co-response partners include Clallam County Sheriff's Office, Port Angeles Fire Department Community Paramedics, Port Angeles Police Department, and Sequim Police Department. Our other community partners include Clallam County Code Enforcement, Clallam County Health & Human Services, and Serenity House of Clallam County.
