Community Protection Program (CPP)
Supports are voluntary services that provide intensive, 24-hour supervision for those who have been identified as posing a significant risk to their community due to their criminal/behavioral history. Community Protection Program provides support for participants to live successfully in the Yakima and Ellensburg community and continue to remain out of prison or other justice system settings. Environmental and programmatic safeguards are in place to protect neighbors and community members, to the extent possible, from behaviors that endanger people or property and/or interfere with the rights of others. This structured, specialized environment gives participants the opportunity to make positive choices to resolve or manage the behaviors that require intensive intervention and supervision.
Community Protection Program offers specialized support within our supported living services model which is designed to assist those adults that have been identified as a potential risk to the safety of themselves or the community. To be eligible for this program an adult it must be determined by:
- Regional Committees and is based on a client’s history.
- A formal Risk Assessment which is completed by a qualified professional contracted with DDA.
- The client’s voluntary agreement to participate.
