To Our Friends and Supporters:
This year we marked an important milestone in our history -
our 25th anniversary! Since 1985 Court Community Service
(CCS) has grown from a small pilot program to an established
organization making a positive impact on the quality of life in Greater
Cleveland. One thing has not changed over the past twenty-five years:
our commitment to providing efficient, well-managed alternative
sentencing programs that are responsive to the needs of the courts and
the community at large.
A look at the numbers clearly demonstrates the impact CCS has
had on our community over the past twenty-five years:
than 200,000 individuals have been referred by area courts to perform
community service work.
referrals have completed more than 6 million hours of community service
at hundreds of charitable and governmental agencies throughout Greater
Cleveland valued at over $42 million.
Since 1985 CCS work crews have…
more than 600,000 bags of litter from public roads and properties
throughout Cuyahoga County.
more than 325,000 scrap tires and more than 15,000 cubic yards of debris
in Cuyahoga County.
thousands of Cleveland seniors with lawn mowing, leaf raking, and snow
In closing, I would like to recognize the work of our
dedicated team of volunteer staff who contributed 10,098 hours of their
time and talent to Court Community Service in 2010. Thanks to their
efforts and the support of our partnering courts and agency work sites,
we had much to celebrate on our 25th anniversary and even
more to look forward to in the coming years.
