Searching Out Solutions; Constructive Alternatives to the Criminalization of Homelessness

United States Interagency Council on Homelessness (pages 31-32), March 2012 

Participants voluntarily sign up for the HCP through a participating homeless service provider and participate in a series of program activities before appearing in court. Participants get credit for ‘time served’ in program activities that address the underlying causes of their homelessness, like life-skills, chemical dependency or AA/NA meetings, computer and literacy classes, training or searching for employment, healthcare (physical and mental), and counseling.
