Mon-Fri 8am-5pm

Post-Release Services

Service League provides post-incarceration and re-entry services for individuals released from the San Mateo County jail, within 48 hours of their release. Many of the individuals who are re-entering our community from incarceration struggle with substance use disorder, mental and physical health issues, unstable housing situations, legal problems and social stigma that can make it even more difficult to gain stability. We understand that re-entering the community can be challenging. In order to help with this process, we are committed to offering a safety net by providing the following support services.

Drop-in hours are Monday to Friday, 8AM to 5PM.
