SHINE Program Initiative


  • Create an overall safer, cleaner and nicer place to live
  • Efficiently utilize and expose resources through community partnerships
  • Improve economic development
  • Prepare future generations to be responsible citizens


SHINE is contributing to this effort by using people who have been sentenced to community service as laborers on projects. Under county supervision they will pay back their debt to society while keeping jail populations down and saving our tax dollars.

Specific Programs

SHINE has specific programs for each contributing facet of our community. High school and college students can earn a Commissioner's Cord and Certificate at graduation for donating 100 hours of community service. Businesses, universities, schools, non-profits and individual citizens are also encouraged to participate. SHINE has helped facilitate several partnership efforts.

Being Involved

There are many ways to be involved. If you would like more information on the program and learn how you can participate, please call my office. I look forward to hearing from you.
