No. The law prohibits routine criminal background checks except under discrete circumstances (i.e., when an individual is detained by law enforcement). Catholic Charities’ Homeless Outreach Services Team (HOST) has developed a rapport with many of the individuals residing in vehicle encampments throughout Santa Rosa and will be screening potential participants prior to placing them in the Program. This includes screening for sex offenders via California Megan’s Law website, which will not be allowed in the Program. Additionally, any individuals with a known history of violence will not be allowed in the Program.
