Court Community Service
WHO WE ARE:
Court Community Service (CCS) is a not-for-profit agency created in 1985 that places individuals referred by courts in the Greater Cleveland area who have been sentenced to perform community service hours. CCS places individuals at not-for-profit and governmental agencies; tracks their progress; and reports their compliance to the referring court. In addition to direct placements at hundreds of agency work sites, CCS also operates supervised community service work crew programs that provide assistance to charitable and governmental organizations throughout Cuyahoga County.
Court Community Service (CCS) was created in 1985 through a grant from the Cleveland Foundation. Under the leadership of Cleveland Municipal Court Judge Ronald B. Adrine, CCS was formed to provide area courts with a cost-effective, efficient means to administer community service sentencing. As a result, judges could increase utilization of community service knowing that a formal system to place defendants; monitor their progress; and verify compliance would be available to the court through CCS.
What began in 1985 with fewer than 500 referrals has grown to more than 4,000 referrals annually from Cuyahoga County Common Pleas, Cleveland Municipal Court and suburban municipal courts. In addition, CCS operates numerous supervised work crew programs that provide litter collection along public roads and provide assistance to charitable and governmental organizations throughout Cuyahoga County.
The mission of Court Community Service is to design and manage an efficient system of quality alternative sentencing options responsive to the needs of the courts and the community.
