Cincy Not-for-profit News now locally owned

By Bryan Orander, president, Charitable Advisor

In 2008, Indianapolis-based Charitable Advisors launched the Cincinnati Not-for-profit News to replicate our success at increasing communication and connection across the Indianapolis nonprofit community.

We knew from our Indy readers that it was filling a void. We chose Cincinnati because of its regional proximity to Indianapolis and because there was no single point of connection for the nonprofit community, and we wanted to help fill that gap.

After three years, Jane Page-Steiner of JPS Nonprofit Strategies in Cincinnati brought her nonprofit background and local connections to further raise the visibility and effectiveness of CA's nonprofit publication. She took on the publisher title.

Though we have had success in Cincinnati, we have found our primary focus has been on growing Indiana publications. Last week, Jane and JPS Nonprofit Strategies took over the ownership, marketing and production responsibilities of the e-newsletter with a goal of further increasing readership and impact in the Greater Cincinnati area.

This is a win for both organizations as Jane is able to pursue her vision of supporting Cincinnati nonprofits, and Charitable Advisors is able to explore launching a regional nonprofit career-focused publication.

If you are also a Cincy subscriber, expect future newsletters from Jane2@jpsnonprofit.com. To avoid the publication landing in your spam folder, it is advised to add this email address to your contact list.

The Cincinnati e-newsletter will continue as a partner for Indy nonprofits that want to reach the readers of the Greater Cincinnati area publication. It will be "business as usual" for Indy job advertisers who can continue to place their ads in the Cincy newsletter for an additional $25. Just submit your job ads to: Ads@Notforprofitnews.com and indicate that you want to advertise in both Indy and Cincy. If you choose this option, you will receive a single invoice as before.

Oregon county programs slash prisoner recidivism rate

By Kaellen Hessel, reporter, Statesman Journal

When the Marion County Reentry Initiative launched in 2010, it had the ambitious goal of cutting the recidivism rate in half over the next five years.

In 2015, it received an Achievement Award from the National Association of Counties for doing just that.

The recidivism rate, traditionally defined as the percentage of offenders who are convicted of a crime within three years of being released from prison, dropped from 26 percent in 2009 to 14 percent in 2014.

Getting to that point involved significantly changing how the Sheriff's Office's Parole and Probation Division did business and joining with community organizations to provide wraparound services and resources to released offenders. Read more.

Community corrections: A modern concept

By Robin Sanders and Tim Bosley, editorial, Midland Daily News

The concept of Community Corrections is designed to provide a specific segment of the present Michigan Department of Corrections population, and citizens who have just begun a life of committing crimes, with an alternative to direct incarceration, as a means to prevent them from becoming "institutionalized" and reintegrating them into the community as productive, taxpaying citizens.

At the very least, the program would remove from the state's prisons inmates who do not pose a security risk to others or the public and reduce the costs of corrections.

At best, the centers would serve to educate, train, reintegrate and ensure the self-sufficiency of those persons deemed eligible through a rigorous and evolving evaluation process.
