Diversion Program Finds Funding Source in The California Endowment, Commencing Pilot Program in Long Beach

It’s been over eight months since the Long Beach City Council initiated a fund-finding mission to finance a pilot program that aims to provide second chances to low-level offenders through work and education diversion. Last night, the Promising Adults Tomorrow’s Hope (PATH) program received its first outside funding in the form of a $75,000 contribution from The California Endowment, which will allow the city to initiate the program.
