Give Recovery

Your Gift of $25 or More Changes Lives Here in Summit County. 

We restore lives through ministry, mentoring and real-world experience.

Since 2004, we’ve been helping people successfully return from incarceration to a purpose-driven life as contributing members of our community with the support of the 50-organization Summit County Reentry Network (SCRN). 

Our award-winning, real-world work force readiness program, the Urbean Cafe, has contributed more than $2.5 million dollars to the local economy since 2011.*
