Salt Lake County, Utah recently launched two pay for success programs that seek to reduce chronic homelessness and recidivism among at-risk populations. Partner Amy Curran led the Chapman team in representing a financial services company investing in the programs. Funding will be used to reduce homelessness through a program that provides housing, behavioral-health treatment, and employment counseling to 315 chronically homeless individuals. The other program seeks to reduce recidivism by funding substance-abuse and behavioral-health treatment for 225 high-risk men.
