The Clackamas County Transition Center is the first facility of its kind in Oregon -- and a major step forward in reducing our jail population.

The Transition Center -- located in CCSO's former South Station in Oregon City -- is a nationally recognized, all-in-one location providing crucial services to people leaving jail or prison and to those at risk of returning. Its goal is to break patterns and change lives.

Clients can walk out of our jail upon release, cross the parking lot, and enter the Transition Center to get access to services including:

  • Employment and housing assistance
  • Peer mentors
  • Cognitive therapy
  • Mental-health and substance-abuse assessments
  • Medication-assisted treatment referrals
  • Bi-weekly SNAP enrollment
  • Basic needs
  • Hygiene items
  • GED courses through Clackamas Community College
  • Parenting-class referrals
  • Narcan
  • ID and vital-statistics assistance
  • AA, NA and DDA support meetings

Transition Center Probation Officers also conduct "reach-ins" at the Clackamas County Jail and local prisons -- completing risk assessments, developing release plans and beginning the referral process for clients before they're released.

Community partners contributing to the Transition Center include:
