For Immediate Release: August 21, 2007
Contact: Christina Deibel or Linda Weyandt; (330) 535-8116

Oriana House is pleased to announce that two of its programs were reaccredited by the American Correctional Association (ACA). The Day Reporting Center located at 750 West Market Street in Akron and the Community Corrections and Treatment Center (CCTC) at 1829 East 55th Street in Cleveland received their reaccreditations at ACA's annual conference last week.


The reaccreditation process involved a two-day, on-site visit to each facility by ACA auditors who reviewed 252 standards for CCTC and 110 standards for the Day Reporting Center, met with Oriana House staff, and interviewed clients in both programs.


The Day Reporting Center in Akron opened in 1991 as a sentencing option for offenders who do not need a residential setting. Caseworkers regularly meet with clients in this program for monitoring purposes. The Day Reporting Center has been accredited since 2001.


The Community Corrections and Treatment Center in Cleveland opened in 2001 as a Halfway House for state referred offenders and a Comprehensive Sanction Center serving offenders referred by the federal criminal justice system.


In presenting the awards, Robert Garvey, chairperson of the Commission on Accreditation for Corrections and Gary Maynard, president of the ACA, complimented Oriana House on its professional level of operation and their success in completing the accreditation process.


Other facilities/programs operated by Oriana House that are accredited by ACA include: Summit County Community Based Correctional Facility (CBCF), the Cliff Skeen CBCF, Home Incarceration, Residential Institutional Probation, Terrence Mann Residential Center, Residential Correctional Center, and the CROSSWEAH CBCF in Seneca County.
