Learn about a visit to HOPICS and an upcoming ACR meeting.


ATI staff is out and about each week meeting with stakeholders, community members and people impacted by the justice system. These field meetings help bring important policies to life, introduce us to those on the frontlines who are working day after day to better our communities and connect us with the people we are ultimately trying to lift up.
Last week, Judge Songhai Armstead visited HOPICS’ various facilities where individuals and families live, work and play — with the goal of returning to their community with supports and services. Click here to see some highlights of the visit.
