Programs like Flip the Script (FTS), a reentry program started in February 2017 that provides individuals exiting incarceration with dedicated housing, employment services, peer support, and opportunities for reentry system advocacy.

The program helps people avoid reoffending and eases their path to reintegrating into society as productive community members.

FTS found its origins in a data collaboration between Multnomah County's Joint Office of Homeless Services and the Department of Community Justice, CCC, and a tireless CCC volunteer.

The assessment found not only that African American clients disproportionately experienced recidivism, but also that recidivism rates were cut in half in individuals who exited CCC’s transitional reentry housing to a renter housing situation with full-time employment. was on the cusp of becoming a free man after having spent more than a third of his life—15 years—in prison.

It’s nice to be around other people going through the same thing you’re going through.

And it’s nice that the others have the same understanding.

Happy Black History Month from Central City Concern!The assessment found not only that African American clients disproportionately experienced recidivism, but also that recidivism rates were cut in half in individuals who exited CCC’s transitional reentry housing to a renter housing situation with full-time employment. He was resolute on putting his head down and forging ahead, even if that meant feeling isolated. I had a game plan in my head.” He still needed support to get where he wanted to go.“To me, going back to jail wasn’t an option for me anymore. The Multnomah County's Assessment & Referral Center eventually sent Patrick to CCC’s Parole Transition Program (PTP), which included housing at the Shoreline building.Elissa was able to assist Patrick with FTS resources that helped him pay for his driver’s license fees and work clothes while he continued to make connections at the union. That was the first time in a long time I felt somebody was actually there to listen to what I had inside me to say instead of just saying ‘okay’ and directing me. They treated me as a person, not just somebody who got out of jail.” Three months after moving into CCC’s transitional reentry housing, Patrick applied for and received permanent housing, making him part of the 58 percent of FTS clients who exit into permanent housing."That was the first time in a long time I felt somebody was actually there to listen to what I had inside me to say instead of just saying ‘okay’ and directing me. (Another 21 percent of FTS clients find another transitional housing opportunity.) Soon after, Patrick was accepted into Carpenters Local 1503, opening the door for him to make an honest living with good wages.Initially shy and slow to trust, Patrick is no longer nervous or quiet. I’m eager to see what I’ve got in store.” • • • Deep gratitude to Meyer Memorial Trust, A Home for Everyone, Multnomah County, County Chair Deborah Kafoury, County Commissioner Loretta Smith, Deputy Truls Neal and Wells Fargo for their support and belief in this program dedicated to eliminating the disparities that exist within our criminal justice system.Instead, Patrick is confident and outspoken, especially in advocacy matters. This month, we’re turning the spotlight on a part of Central City Concern that hosts almost a quarter of all the volunteers at CCC!Ask any of the dozen FTS clients who participate in this culturally specific group of African Americans and they’ll all agree: there’s something special happening here.When they meet, they create a space to speak candidly about their journeys and their experiences that are unique to being an African American community member trying to make their way back into society.He’s an active member of the group, finding a sense of community he’d been missing for so long. With so many great folks to share, we couldn’t pick just one, so this month’s spotlight features two of our dedicated volunteers from the Letty Owings Center (LOC).He has also reconnected with his family and is working to build relationships again. Since LOC’s first days, volunteers have played a large role in bringing activities and extra comforts to the mothers and children who live there.
