Ohio opens multiservice center aimed at helping prison inmates reintegrate into society

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Saturday, July 12, 2014 11:16 AM EDT
CHILLICOTHE, Ohio


Ohio has opened a multi-agency, multiservice facility aimed at helping prison inmates better reintegrate into society.

The center at Ross Correctional Institution in Chillicothe houses the Ohio Adult Parole Authority, Alvis House, the day reporting program of the Ross County sheriff, and EXIT, a halfway house for former offenders.

The facility opened Friday about 50 miles south of Columbus. It's named for Terry Collins, who retired as director of the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction in 2010 after a 32-year prisons career.

The Columbus Dispatch reports the center will house a variety of treatment and education programs. Inmates will also work with gardens and as beekeepers, with some food to be donated to a local food bank.
