The Ross Correctional Institution seeks to provide offenders of felony convictions within the State of Ohio a safe, efficient, humane and appropriately secure correctional institution, while maintaining dedication to the protection of citizens of the State of Ohio and the local community. Mindful of Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction's initiatives of re-entry, community service and victim reparation, we seek to instill in offenders an improved sense of responsibility and the capacity to become law-abiding members of society.

Unique Programs
  • Adult Basic Education (ABLE) is funded with Adult Basic Education funds through the Ohio Central School System. ABLE Roofing is a ten to twelve week program that targets offenders with reading scores below 6.1. The program offers training on the use of roofing tools, identification of roofing materials, figuring the amount of materials needed, and roofing installation. This program offers readiness skills to offenders to become successfully employed roofing helpers upon release.

  • The New Life program is a modified 120 bed therapeutic community for offenders with identified alcohol and other drug (AOD) problems. New Life helps offenders develop the skills they need to maintain an AOD and crime-free lifestyle. Offenders participate in a 24-hour learning experience in which individual improvement in behavior, attitude, and emotions are monitored and mutually reinforced by staff and fellow program participants during the daily regimen. Within the limits imposed by a prison setting, the offenders, under staff supervision, run the operation of the community. This is accomplished by assigning various "crews" that are arranged in a hierarchy according to seniority, individual progress, and productivity. This social organization is fundamental to the rehabilitative approach of mutual self-help, work as education and therapy, peers as good role models, and staff as rational authorities
