Briefly, what are you going to do?

Expand and enhance restaurant Ex-Offender Employment Program at The Home of Chicken and Waffles. HCW has a stellar track record of hiring and training ex-offenders. For previously incarcerated employees at HCW, less than twenty percent will return to prison. Over eighty percent of ex-offenders remain employed at HCW or within the food industry for three or more years. A recidivism rate of less than twenty percent is not only a major achievement but a phenomenon which must be replicated statewide given the rapidly growing numbers of ex-offenders attempting to reintegrate into society. We are seeking funds to formalize, enhance and expand this program.
