Description

The Reentry Coalition of Northwest Ohio (RCNWO) is a coalition of agencies and service providers working to help individuals released from incarceration. Their mission is to provide leadership, build partnerships and promote shared accountability for successful community reentry. The goals of the RCNWO are to eliminate barriers to successful reentry, reduce recidivism, and promote public safety. The RCNWO’s “Going Home to Stay” or “First Wednesdays” programs are offered in conjunction with the Northwest Ohio Regional Reentry Officer of the Lima Region Adult Parole Authority. The program provides monthly opportunities for returning citizens and their families to connect with approximately 20 to 25 service providers, including volunteer attorneys and Bureau of Motor Vehicle Reinstatement Center representatives. Together, they address child support, identification, housing, legal and employment related issues. Additionally, The RCNWO has Housing, Employment, Legal, Services and Supports and various ad hoc subcommittees which identify reentry programs and initiatives that are needed to expand the opportunities for justice impacted individuals.
