Kiwanis get update on WCCCF

Dave Ervin, representing the West Central Community Correctional Facility, was the speaker at Thursday’s regular Kiwanis meeting.

Ervin has been with the WCCCF since it was first proposed in 1993 and opened its doors in 1999. He told the assembled Kiwanis members that the vision of the WCCCF is to prepare offenders to re-enter their communities on release. Some of the programs offered at the WCCCF are substance abuse and anger control management, spiritual activities, employment training, and vocational assessment, among many other programs.

The WCCCF is one of 18 such facilities in Ohio, and it housed 262 males and 107 females so far this calendar year.

 In a story that was posted on peakofohio.com earlier this week, Bob Erwin was presented the “William Zeller Fellowship Award” by Ohio Kiwanis Governor Craig Wallace at the meeting.

The Kiwanis also inducted three new members – Barbara McDonald, Jeff Roman, and Brenda Snyder – at Thursday’s meeting.
