Community Involvement

Giving Back to the Community

Reentry into the Community

Mason County Reentry Coalition (MCRC) is comprised of several county agencies, including a Commissioner and local law enforcement. MCRC meets at WCC on a regular basis with the inmate reentry coalition to discuss available resources for reentry.

Evergreen Unit is comprised of 180 inmates with less than 9 months to serve. Staff members in this unit work closely with entities in the community to provide release planning, services, and resources to the inmates preparing to transition back into the community. This unit also houses inmates made up of MI2 and MI3 workers to assist in the inmate workforce.
