Marion County Sheriff’s Office – Parole and Probation Division

Provides supervision of offenders placed on parole or probation.
CONTACT: Matt Meier, or 503-316-6617

Our goal is to reduce recidivism and promote public safety by incorporating the use of validated assessments to identify risk, need, and responsivity characteristics. We encourage the participation and collaboration of community-based social service agencies, and apply intensive cognitively based aftercare and relapse prevention strategies to the most significant areas of offender risk. We aspire for offenders being released into our community to have a positive reintegration by targeting meaningful offender intervention. Some of the specific services we provide to the offender population we serve are community supervision, institutional reach-ins and release orientation for family and friends of the releasing offender.

CONTACT: or 503-584-4865

Mid Valley Mentors (MVM) is a community-based nonprofit agency that provides support and transition services through mentoring programs. MVM’s Reentry Solutions Program provides mentoring to support inmates releasing from state prisons to live in Marion County.  The Reentry Solutions Program strives to improve opportunities for successful community living and reduce offenders’ chances of returning to prison.

MVM recruits, screens and trains volunteers to match as mentors with clients releasing from prison.  Mentors are matched with clients based on the client’s transition needs, personal interests and personality. Once matched, mentors and clients meet periodically prior to release from prison and weekly in the community after release.
