ReEntry Stories

ReEntry Stories

Every year in Ohio, more than 20,000 people are released from prison, 1,500 in Montgomery County alone. When they return to the community, they often they have trouble finding jobs, housing, education and mental health services.

The Center for Community Voices started a radio/web/podcast series called ReEntry Stories to give them the chance to tell their stories by presenting conversations between people who were once in prison.

The series is produced by Mary Evans, herself a returned citizen, with editing support from Neenah Ellis.

Funding for ReEntry Stories comes from the Eichelberger Center for Community Voices.
