Treatment Accountability for Safer Communities (TASC) - This 15-month program is designed to help the family unit stay intact throughout the incarceration so that when the inmate is released, the bond with the family and the child has been maintained. Only those inmates with children are eligible to participate and the offender must be released from prison to Lucas County. The program begins when the offender has six months of his sentence left to serve and will continue nine months after his release. The offenders will be mentored while in prison and their families will be brought in to take part in mutual programming. Families will receive help in such areas as education, job skills, and substance abuse treatment; children will participate in youth programs. The RIDGE Project: This is a faith based non-profit organization that offers a marriage and family strengthening project developed specifically to address the unique obstacles families face when one partner is incarcerated for more than six months. The program works with both parents not only to ensure healthy marriages and strong families, but also to ensure successful reentry of the inmate, stop incarceration within family of inmates, reduce recidivism for ex-offenders and reduce negative behaviors among children of inmates.
