Comprehensive Sanction Center

The Community Corrections and Treatment Center (CCTC) in Cleveland is a Comprehensive Sanction Center for the Federal Bureau of Prisons. CCTC serves federal pre-release clients, federal clients sanctioned by a federal judge, or federal clients sanctioned by their United States probation officer. CCTC also provides pre-trial treatment services to federal defendants awaiting trial.

Halfway House (Transitional Control, Parolee)

The Halfway House Program is designed for offenders needing long-term rehabilitative programming of 90 days or longer. Program placement is in lieu of incarceration or as a part of efforts to reintegrate offenders back into the community. The Halfway House Program accepts adult felony, misdemeanor, and traffic offenders from the courts, probation departments, the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction or the Federal Bureau of Prisons. Separate areas are maintained for male and female offenders. Release from the facility is permitted only for verified work, education, authorized activities or an earned privilege. Oriana House operates Halfway House programs in Akron, Cleveland and Sandusky.


Employment Placement Program

The Employment Placement Program provides the courts with a direct sentencing option to a highly structured community sanction while diverting offenders away from the crowded jail system. Job seeking and interviewing skills are taught as part of this program which assists offenders in finding and maintaining employment. The Employment Placement Program is intended for adult male and female felony, misdemeanor, and traffic offenders in need of rehabilitative programming.


Cuyahoga County Jail Reduction Program

This program was implemented in 2006 with Oriana House and other licensed halfway house providers in Cuyahoga County to address jail overcrowding. Through this program, offenders who are in jail may be eligible for early release if they complete a treatment program under the supervision of the Cuyahoga County Adult Probation Department.


Community Based Correctional Facility

Community Based Correctional Facilities (CBCFs) offer Oriana House's most restrictive programming. Felony offenders are sentenced to a CBCF in lieu of state prison commitments. Programming is highly structured and includes substance abuse treatment, job training, educational services, cognitive skills, and a required completion of community service. The CBCF Program strives to teach offenders the skills they are lacking in order to function appropriately and productively in the community. When offenders come to the CBCF, they are confined to the facility for the first 30 days. As clients progress through the program, they are encouraged to obtain and maintain employment, and they earn pass privileges. Programming typically ranges from four to six months in length.


The Judge Nancy R. McDonnell CBCF opened in Cuyahoga County in January 2011. It is the 19th CBCF in Ohio.
