Judge Amy Corrigall Jones, Presiding Judge Summit County Valor Court and SCORR Program Hosts Summit County Autumn Resource Event


 

Summit County, Ohio:  Summit County Valor Court, developed and led by Presiding Judge Amy Corrigall Jones, was established based on the recognition that many of our veterans return to civilian life with serious trauma both physical and mental, which has led to their involvement with the criminal justice system. By providing this court, veterans receive access to programs, treatment and interaction with mentors in a collaborative initiative to enhance chances of success.

 

The Summit County Offender Recidivism Reduction “SCORR” Program, developed and led by presiding Judge Amy Corrigall Jones, was established to provide high risk offenders with a swift, certain and fair approach to community supervision.  SCORR provides increased support and resources to improve offender outcomes while on supervision, leading to a crime free lifestyle.

 

In furtherance of the Valor Court and SCORR Program mission, Judge Amy Corrigall Jones is pleased to announce the Summit County Autumn Resource Event.  The Resource Event will be held on Tuesday, November 12, 2019 at 10:00 a.m. in the Summit County Courthouse Ceremonial Courtroom, 209 South High Street in Akron.  The goal of the event is to connect SCORR and Valor Court participants with resources, services, and support to improve their chance of community integration and well-being, allowing them to live a successful and satisfying lifestyle.

 

Judge Corrigall Jones said the Resource Event shows participants there is hope and that many resources are available. “When they’re getting this level of help, it lets them know—you know what? My community does care.”

 

Services are tailored to meet individual need.  Program participants are eligible to receive educational services, which include literacy skills, GED and high school diplomas, financial coaching, employment, housing and recovery support services.  Representatives from the following Summit County agencies will be present to provide information and services:
