Welcome to the Ohio Ex-Offender Reentry Coalition

Reentry Spotlight

National Reentry Week

Dear Reentry Colleague,

In an effort to draw greater attention to reentry, the U.S. Department of Justice designated April 24-30, 2016, National Reentry Week. At the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction, we are committed to our mission to reduce recidivism among those we touch and our vision to reduce crime in Ohio. We are very aware, however, that our ability to be effective in these pursuits is largely dependent on the dedicated efforts of local service, program and reentry support providers like you. In honor of National Reentry Week, please accept this letter as our way of saying thank you for your excellent work. Read More...

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.
