The Lorain/Medina CBCF is a 130 bed Community Based Correctional Facility (CBCF) serving Lorain and Medina Counties. The CBCF is a secure facility, providing a local alternative to prison with the primary purpose of reducing recidivism for male and female felony offenders using Cognitive Behavioral programming that addresses criminal and addictive behaviors along with educational and vocational opportunities.
The mission of the Lorain/Medina Community Based Correctional Facility is to ensure public safety by reducing recidivism.
The Ohio Risk Assessment System (ORAS) is a dynamic risk/needs assessment system used with adult offenders. ORAS provides the Courts, Probation Departments, CBCFs and others with an effective assessment tool to determine appropriate sanctions and interventions for individual offenders. Based on that information, effective case plans can be developed and services tailored to address individual needs.
Based on the ORAS, the following classes may be part of a resident's program plan at the CBCF:
Criminal and Addictive Thinking
Thinking for a Change
Drug and Alcohol Education
Trauma Recovery and Empowerment Model
