Office of Ex-Offender Reentry Receives Award

The Montgomery County Office of Ex-Offender Reentry and Community-Wide Reentry Task Force recently received a 2011 Achievement Award from the National Association of Counties.  The annual NACo Achievement Award Program is an awards program that recognizes innovative county government programs.

“I am incredibly proud of the hard work and dedication of our reentry professionals and task force members who work each and every day to improve public safety for our citizens while providing services to ex-offenders who are committed to change,” said Montgomery County Commissioner Debbie Lieberman, Co-Chair - Community-Wide Reentry Task Force.  “We will continue to work closely with our community partners to achieve our goal of reducing recidivism in Montgomery by 50% over five years.”

The Montgomery County Office of Ex-Offender Reentry is located at 1133 S. Edwin C. Moses Blvd., Suite 335 in Dayton.  It is a “one-stop” reentry resource office that provides employment services, case management, drug, alcohol and mental health services, mentoring, pre-release reentry planning and referrals to a variety of community resources oriented toward ex-offenders.

“High recidivism rates impact each and every neighborhood of our community, both in human costs and economic costs,” said Judge Walter H. Rice.  “I can’t say enough about the dedicated individuals who are tackling these issues to make Montgomery County a better place for all of its citizens.”

Commissioner Lieberman will accept the 2011 Achievement Award in July at NACo’s Annual Conference.
