Texana Center participates in two joint projects with the Texas Correctional Office on Offenders with Medical or Mental Impairments (TCOOMMI).
The Adult Project works collaboratively with the Adult Probation Departments in Colorado and Fort Bend counties and with the Rosenberg District Parole Office to jointly provide intensive case management services to clients with a serious and persistent mental illness who are currently on probation or parole. The focus of intensive services is to keep individuals in treatment to stabilize their mental illness, meet probation/parole requirements, integrate into the community, and prevent hospitalization, recidivism, and incarceration.
The Juvenile Project, call the Turnaround Program, is a joint effort with Fort Bend County Juvenile Probation offering behavioral healthcare services, intensive in-home therapy with the youth and family and probation supervision for youth who are first encountering the juvenile justice system. The program works to strengthen families, help families develop appropriate coping skills, and build support systems to promote healthy parenting and family support in addition to treating the youth’s mental illness. The goal is to prevent further encounters with the juvenile justice system and stabilize and continue treatment of the youth’s mental illness.
Texana Center received a grant from the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) in collaboration with Fort Bend County to provide services to those individuals who have been incarcerated in the last 12 months with high propensity for recidivism and who are Fort Bend County residents. This program serves adults with serious and persistent mental illness who have experienced multiple psychiatric hospitalizations. This project expands the Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) to the forensic (criminal justice involved) population also known as Forensic Assertive Community Treatment (FACT). Additionally, Texana collaborates with Fort Bend Regional Council to meet the substance use needs of those served. In addition to FACT services, the team has access to flexible funds to use for transportation, transitional housing, emergency food, clothing, etc. to meet the needs of those in the project.
