Welcome to the Ohio Ex-Offender Reentry Coalition

Reentry Spotlight

Dear Partners in Reentry,

I am excited to bring some recent changes within the Department of Rehabilitation and Correction (DRC) to your attention. We have reorganized sections in an effort to align programming, reentry, research and evidence based practices endeavors. Staff currently independent of one another will be reorganized under a new section entitled the Office of Programming, Development and Evaluation.

I am the newly appointed Deputy Director over this section. Over the years, I have had an opportunity to work with many of you in my former positions within the Division of Parole and Community Services or prison operations. I am looking forward to reconnecting with many and also making new acquaintances in my new capacity.


Jessica Dennis, Deputy Director
Office of Programming, Development and Evaluation

Mike Davis, Chief
Office of Reentry and Enterprise Development

Our Mission

The mission of the Ohio Ex-Offender Reentry Coalition is to ensure successful offender reentry, reduce recidivism and enhance public safety.

The Coalition will achieve these goals through collaborative partnerships with government entities, faith and community-based organizations and other stakeholders.

The Coalition will utilize a holistic evidence-based approach that starts at the point of contact with the criminal justice system and includes education, families, health services, alcohol and other drug treatment, job training, mentorship and housing.
