Ohio Ex-Offender Reentry Coalition Technical Assistance

Coaching Guides

The Center for Effective Public Policy        The Urban Institute       The Carey Group

The Center for Effective Public Policy (the Center) and its partners, The Urban Institute and The Carey Group, were selected by the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) to serve as the training and technical assistance providers to the Fiscal Year 2007 Presidential Prisoner Reentry Initiative (PRI) grantees. As part of the PRI TTA Program, eleven Coaching Packets were developed. These Coaching Packets offer practical value beyond the jurisdictions involved in this initiative and are now available to criminal justice professionals and their partners interested in enhancing their strategies for reducing recidivism and improving offender outcomes.

Each of these Coaching Packets provides an overview of a key topic related to successful offender reentry, concrete strategies and key steps for enhancing practice in this area, and a "self assessment tool" that jurisdictions can use to evaluate their strengths and challenges in the particular topic area discussed. The packets are organized in three series:

Series 1 provides a blueprint for an effective offender reentry system; 
Series 2 addresses key issues related to the delivery of evidence-based services to offenders; 
Series 3 provides guidance and tools to ensure that reentry efforts achieve their intended outcomes.
