Social Workers in the Public Defender’s Office
We help clients when they are incarcerated and those who are in the community receiving services from the Public Defender’s Office.
We support our work with the Public Defender Attorneys by providing written documentation to inform the court of how to best meet the needs of our clients.
Social Workers provide case management services, assistance with helping clients find program placements and connection to supportive services in their communities.
We educate Public Defender clients and family members about the criminal process and assist in overcoming barriers to accessing services.
And we also….. Provide testimony in Solano County Courts on behalf of Public Defender clients when requested to do so by their attorney
Our Social Workers maintain accurate information about local government and community-based resources to facilitate client referrals to services.
Public Defender Social Workers are committed to staying up to ongoing training and continuing education related to reentry services, changes in the criminal justice arena, changes and advances in mental health provision, new developments in trauma-informed care, and other information regarding services for clients.
