ReEntry Stories


ReEntry Stories

Every year in Ohio, more than 22,000 people are released from prison, 1,500 in Montgomery County alone.

ReEntry Stories features conversations between people who were once in prison.  When they return to the community, they often they have trouble finding jobs, housing, education and mental health services.

All the people in our series have taken part in either Sinclair Community College’s Advanced Job Training program or the X Factor Initiative, part of the Dayton Collaboratory.

The series is produced by Mary Evans and is a collaboration between WYSO, Sinclair Community College and the Dayton Collaboratory.  Funding support comes from Sinclair and the Eichelberger Center for Community Voices.
