CH.A.R.T. - Chronic-Utilizer Alternative Response Team
A coordinated effort by more than 30 organizations to address the needs of individuals with complex social and behavioral health challenges. This program focuses on reducing frequent contact with jail, police, courts, fire department and emergency department by those individuals by coordinating care, finding housing, and reducing harm. This program is led in partnership with Community Health Center of Snohomish County.

Safe Streets Work Crew
In partnership with HopeWorks Social Enterprises, the City operates the Safe Streets Work Crew as a criminal justice diversion. Participates provide community restitution through litter clean-up and motivational programming in exchange for reduced sentences or dismissal of charges. In 2018, SSWC participants cleaned up more than 2500 large bags of litter in areas around North Everett.
For more information, contact Jack Jessup .
Safe Streets Supportive Employment
This program provides employment support services for individuals in other Safe Streets programs who are successful with housing and treatment and are ready for the next step in their lives. Operated in partnership the Bridgeways Supported Employment , we are also looking for employers to hire qualified candidates who are living with mental illness or in recovery from substance-use disorder.

A supportive housing project for 65 chronically homeless individuals with 24/7 on-site support and security. It was developed in partnership with Catholic Housing Services as part of the Safe Streets Plan. The City sold the property upon which it sits to the CHS in 2017 in exchange for their agreement to build and operate supportive housing according to conditions outlined by the City. Openings will be filled through Coordinate Entry access by calling 2-1-1.

Naloxone is a drug that can reverse the effects of an opioid overdose. As part of the Safe Streets Plan, the City has expanded access to naloxone to certain City staff. In addition to police and fire, staff from Parks and Community Services, Transit, and the Library are trained to carry naloxone.

Treatments and Services
Beginning in 2018, the City began a unique partnership with local treatment providers to address gaps in services. The goal is to provide “treatment without delay” for individuals with substance-use disorder. Through partnerships with providers, the Diversion Center, and the Carnegie Resource Center, we have made huge strides in getting treatment without delay.
If you or someone you know needs help with substance use disorder, you can find out more information about treatment here: www.Snohomishoverdoseprevention.com
