Leaders of these signatory entities make up the Policy Coordinating Group, which governs Albany LEAD. Key service providers Catholic Charities Care Coordination Services and St. Catherine’s Center for Children Homeless Services are additional signatories to an amended MOU.
The Operational Working Group meets biweekly to share information on and coordinate services for Albany LEAD clients. It brings together operational partners who are in direct contact with individual clients: case managers; Albany police officers; and leaders or representatives of the District Attorney’s Office, Public Defender, Alternate Public Defender, and Albany County departments of Mental Health, Probation, and Social Services.
The Center for Law and Justice oversees community engagement for Albany LEAD. The Center also coordinates the Community Leadership Team, which provides the community and stakeholders with additional feedback and accountability.
