WORK THAT CHANGES LIVES
It was an honor and privilege to be able to sign SB2630, which will allow HCI to sell inmate-made products and services on the open market to the general public. Not only will this bill help the program to be self-sustaining, it will also give individuals in the program a source of income to help meet their financial obligations while incarcerated.
What We Do
Operating under the Hawaii Department of Public Safety, HCI's mission is to be self-sustaining while providing all able-bodied offenders a vocational rehabilitation with real-world work opportunities, which develops inter-personal skills ensuring the individual's ability to be a productive and contributing member to society upon release. While incarcerated, a working offender develops skills that are critical for his or her successful reintegration back into the community. We all benefit when an offender is released and he or she has the ability to secure gainful employment, paying taxes, and becoming a productive, contributing member to society.
HCI partners with many different manufacturers so that we can provide our customers with a one stop solution. We can provide custom work in our different shops where we start from raw materials and help you create exactly what you need. We also work with our partners so that our offenders are able to add value to the product by partial manufacture and assembly. Whether it is upholstering panel walls and office chairs, cutting out desk surfaces and assembling them to the base, or on site assembly and labor, we provide opportunities for Government Agencies and Non Profit Organizations
