Project Ready

Project Ready is a U.S, Department of Justice Second Chance Act Grant Program created to provide re-entry services to ex-offenders returning to their community. We have numerous community partners willing and ready to help make your re-entry to Muskingum County a success.

Our goal is to help you achieve a successful re-entry to the Muskingum County community, establish and maintain recovery with a focus on mental health and substance abuse treatment, and improve your life situation. Case management services are provided as a primary means of support. We will also help you navigate the many resources available to you in the local community.
