The Bob Janes Empowerment Center

The Bob Janes Empowerment Center is a jail diversion program made up of a 72-bed (male & female) unit & 9 Medical Respite (male & female) unit beds located in Bldg. K on SalusCare’s Ortiz Campus. The Empowerment Center is for individuals who are at risk for committing minor non-violent crimes and suffer from a behavioral health crisis. Individuals are accepted 24 hours a day. The goal is to reduce the number of individuals with known mental illness or substance use disorders who are arrested and taken to the Lee County jail for low-level offenses. The Triage Center is operated by the Center For Progress and Excellence (CPE). CPE works with multi-agencies in a collaborative effort to assist individuals in transitioning back into the community. The following is a list of agencies that CPE works with: SalusCare, Lee Health, Lee County Human & Veteran Services, United Way of Lee, Hendry, Glades & Okeechobee Counties, and Lee County Courts and all local law enforcement agencies.
