Breaking the Cycle of Recidivism
Part of the SuperCom Group, Leaders in Community Alternatives, Inc. (LCA) has been a leader in creating effective and economically efficient programs and interventions to address the devasting effects of abuse, addiction, poverty, and crime. We have a strong history of working in true partnership with our partners in County government across California to develop, pilot, and implement innovative solutions to complex human and social concerns.
Supporting Community Safety Solutions
Our vision is to be recognized as a leader in providing multifaceted interventions, evidenced-based programs, and technological solutions to support individuals in contact with the justice system to live safer, happier, more productive lives.
LCA was founded in August 1991 by Linda Connelly, a leader in innovative community-based corrections throughout her career.
For over 40 years, she has worked in both the public and private sectors of the criminal justice field, specializing in direct service, as well as program and policy development.
LCA began with electronic monitoring and residential treatment programming. In 1994, LCA became the first private electronic monitoring agency in the country to be accredited by the American Correctional Association.
LCA was originally Linda Connelly & Associates, Inc., but then grew into Leaders in Community Alternatives, Inc. Although this remains our legal name, we are known as “LCA” among our participants, customers, and the criminal justice community.
The stock for LCA was acquired by SuperCom on January 2016. Since 1988, SuperCom has been a leading global provider of identity and tracking solutions for various private and government entities. The combination of SuperCom and LCA provides a strong platform for future growth and professional development.
Promoting Communal Safety
LCA is committed to delivering affordable, reliable solutions that respond to the needs of participants in a caring and respectful environment. One person at a time, our aim is to partner with you and your loved ones to promote wellness, reduce recidivism, and enhance public safety.
LCA works with governments, the public sector, judicial systems, community leaders and community-based organizations to promote public safety and bring long term, systemic change in our criminal justice system.
LCA’s mission statement is simple, focused and powerful.
Our mission is “improving communities.”
