Community Implementation

Since 2016, over 150 individuals within community resource organizations to assist individuals with criminal justice involvement have been trained as facilitators in the evidence-based prevention intervention, Creating Lasting Family Connections (CLFC). This intervention has been implemented within various community settings throughout Ohio, serving both youth and adults impacted by incarceration.

Creating Lasting Family Connections (CLFC) Implementation

In 2019, four community organizations joined together in the Initiative’s first implementation learning community or Community of Practice to strengthen the impact of their community programs. The Implementation Community of Practice is a funded opportunity for organizations to receive training and technical assistance with planning, evaluation, and sustaining their respective programs while also building capacity through peer to peer networking and learning. The success of this model has led to offering the opportunity on yearly basis and is currently serving its fourth cohort of participants. Watch the video to hear from the first cohort of participants.
