About the Office of Reentry


The Office of Reentry is dedicated to reducing recidivism by following these five guiding principles as we firmly believe in the value of all residents within Cuyahoga County:

  • Increase public safety for the residents of Cuyahoga County
  • Spark opportunity for reentrants that help both the individual and their family build a better future
  • Ensure fair and equal access to services and opportunities
  • Coordinate and convene reentry stakeholders
  • Ensure sustainability of the reentry service delivery system
Prior to the inception of the Office of Reentry, the Greater Cleveland Reentry Leadership Coalition was formed in 2007 as a reentry task force consisting of city and county government officials, the heads of local government agencies, corrections, service providers, faith-based organizations, and behavioral health, employment and housing specialists.
