This report presents the findings from a process evaluation of the Justice Housing Program (JHP).

The JHP is a collaboration between the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) Justice and Community Safety Directorate (JACS), especially ACT Corrective Services (ACTCS), the Community Services Directorate (CSD), especially Housing ACT (HACT), the social and community housing sector and non-government organisations.

JHP provides transitional accommodation for detainees exiting prison, who are assessed as suitable for independent, shared living. JHP is designed to assist clients in finding more permanent accommodation, as well as linking them to community services and other support networks. The program aims to contribute to the goal of RR25by25 of achieving a 25% reduction in the recidivism rate in the ACT by 2025 (JACS, 2020).
