WE HELP THE COURTS
CCS staff interview each individual referred by the court and matches them with an appropriate community service placement at a not-for-profit or governmental agency or on a CCS supervised work crew. Placements are determined based on a variety of factors including criminal history, location, health restrictions and work experience. In addition, placements can be arranged to accommodate an individual’s work and school schedules as well as court-related obligations. In addition, placements can be arranged for individuals out of the Cleveland area if needed.
CCS monitors each client’s community service assignment and provides regular updates to the referring court on their progress - alleviating the burdensome placement process and follow-up work for court staff. In addition, CCS has partnerships with hundreds of not-for-profit and governmental agencies that provide supervised community service assignments. Participating agency work sites must agree to rules for participation in CCS; provide proof of liability insurance; and provide timely and accurate reports.
Since 1985, courts have referred nearly 300,000 individuals to CCS who have completed more than 8.6 million hours of community service in our community.
