Hawaii Reentry Programs

Hawaii Reentry Programs

Hawaii Department of Corrections: Department of corrections reentry program for the state of Hawaii.

Adult offender Reentry Programs and Services: Provides offenders awaiting reentry into the community with documents, such as identification papers, referrals to services, medical prescriptions, job training certificates, apprenticeship papers, information on obtaining public assistance, and other documents useful in achieving a successful transition from prison.

Adult Self-Management Program – The ASM program is a professionally designed and delivered preventive program that equips individuals with the skills needed to successfully manage such strong emotional states as stress, anger, and anxiety on the job and off.

Community Assistance Center – The Community Assistance Center Programs help increase a participant’s chance of a violence and crime free life.

Hope Services – Provides transitional housing services for men and women returning to our community from incarceration. Program is staffed 24/7 and is a sober living environment. Random drug testing is conducted on site. Daily evening classes include house meetings, relapse prevention groups, gender specific groups, meth groups, new hire club, budgeting, renter’s education and other life skills classes. Structure recreational activities are coordinated and offered on the weekend. Persons returning to our community have limited direction of nowhere to go and do not know what to do once they are released from incarceration. An inmate’s housing plan may be denied from the supervising authority and thus have no other housing resources if not for HRC. This transitional housing program offers an alternative to continued incarceration.

Makana O Ke Akua – Makana O Ke Akua, Inc. (MOKA) is a private, faith-based non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization. We are dedicated to creating a clean and sober living environment for men who want to make a positive change with their lives.

Restorative Programs: An unusual program developed in Hawaii is helping inmates learn new skills, reconnect with their loved ones and prepare for life outside the prison walls. The Restorative Circle Project, which began at Waiawa Correctional Facility on the island of O’ahu, brings inmates together with the people they have wronged to find ways to repair the harm, explore forgiveness and make plans for their transition back into the community.
