Breaking Barriers: A Rapid Rehousing and Employment Pilot Program for Adults on Probation in Los Angeles County

This evaluation report provides early findings of the Breaking Barriers pilot program that provides adults on probation with a time-limited rental housing subsidy and housing retention services, along with case management and employment support. The report reviews the program’s impact on reducing recidivism, improving housing stability among program participants, and increasing employment incomes enough for participants to take over rental payments without the subsidy at the end of the two-year program period. Additionally, the report examines factors that supported and hindered the program’s implementation and lessons learned from implementing Breaking Barriers at the field level.
