    Reentry Court: One Community's Model to Help Youth Returning Home

    in Legal

    After spending time in a correctional facility, youth are often released without family, system, or community support.  For a myriad of reasons, these youth face high rates of unemployment and education failure, have limited viable housing options, and are unable to access the assistance they require. Many now realize that in order to achieve long-term success, that reentry planning must occur way before a youth returns to his or her community. In order to address this disconnect and increase chances of success, the Juvenile Court in Cuyahoga County, Ohio, in partnership with the Ohio Department of Youth Services, Division of Parole, and community-based services, created a reentry court. Using evidence-based practices and with a goal to reduce recidivism and re-incarceration of youth, the project begins to work with youth several months before release and the support continues post-release. Guests on this episode will discuss the development and implementation of the collaborative effort, provide an overview of the mechanics of the reentry court itself, and share lessons learned.


    Guests:


    Karl M. Cetina, MPA, LICDC-CS, Director of Juvenile TASC for Cuyahoga County Catholic Charities, Diocese of Cleveland


    Ian Fraser, Cleveland Regional Parole Administrator, Ohio Department of Youth Services


    Magistrate Terease Neff, Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas, Juvenile Division

    Johnny Strozier Keeping It Real (a reentry show) 04/25/15

    in Politics Progressive

    Johnny Strozier spent over 45 years in the Georgia prison system, from age 10 in 1968 until 2013 when he was in his mid-50's. He joined us on "Human Rights Demand" to encourage others to keep the faith and stay out of prison. The call-in number is (347)857-3293 at 9pmEST every Saturday night to speak with Johnny and his guests to make a human rights demand to stop mass incarceration and encourage released prisoners to think right, act right, and then expect their lives to go right.


    America has a recidivism rate of 67.5 percent, indicating that released prisoners need encouragement and practical help to successfully reenter society. Youths are still going to jail at astronomical rates, and prisoners are released every day. Johnny offers advice and information that will help redirect them.


    Johnny's assembly of guests usually include a former prison chaplain and representatives from churches in and around Atlanta who offer subsistence assistance as well as spiritual advice and the opportunity to unite in fellowship with a body of believers who will encourage continued success for those reentering the community after prison release. This show is based in Christianity, but all people are welcome.

    Offender Reentry - A Police Perspective

    in Self Help

    "Prisoner reentry today presents significant challenges for communities and the ex-offender." "We know that most people who are incarcerated will eventually be released, and we know that an increasing number of offenders will be released without having received adequate employment skills or substance abuse counseling. We also know that recently released offenders are estimated to account for 20percent of all adult arrests made by police. Therefore, it should be no surprise that the best possible outcome for the community and the ex-offender can be achieved more effectively when police are proactively involved in supporting the reentry process.

    "AIMI vs. USA" re Circumventing Successful Reentry: Goolsby 04/18/15

    in Politics Progressive

    An "AIMI vs. USA" claimant, Ms. Goolsby, will report at 9pmEST Saturday, April 18, Listen to the live broadcast via phone to make comments at (818)572.2947. She says her mentally ill son was recently re-arrested after being out of prison on parole for two years and denied his social security and Medicaid because Georgia's prison system refused to furnish the Social Security Admn. with documentation proving that he was a psychiatric inmate who was treated for mental illness throughout his incarceration. He lived homeless for most of the time he was out of prison. He passed 13 drug tests, but finally got so frustrated with being broke and hungry that he failed one and tested positive for #marijuana . Therefore, his parole was revoked. Before prison, he had received disability income since he was a small child. His mother reports that due to the Georgia #prison system's noncooperation with the Social Security Admin., he could not make it and rejoined the 1.25 million mentally ill prisoners in the USA. Reasons like this cause America to have a 67.5 percent #recidivism  rate. A disability #lawyer was working with the family to get the documentation from Georgia and resume the disabled young man's social security, and he had a job for a short while, but ...

    The tape will be available for listening any time after the live show on Blogralkradio. Thank you for giving Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill. Whether or not you have relatives who suffer persecution for having mental illness, you are taxpayers who pay prison investors to warehouse America's mentally ill people.
