WCF is a 334-bed minimum-security prison for sentenced male inmates. It provides an environment that helps inmates transition from traditional prison to re-entry into the community. inmates. All inmates participate in education or substance abuse treatment programs.

240 beds are devoted to a substance abuse treatment called KASHBOX, an intensive residential treatment program for those with serious substance abuse problems. The other major substance abuse treatment program is Crossroads, which is designed for parole violators who return to prison for failing to comply with the conditions of their parole because of substance abuse. It was implemented in 1999, with 40 beds.

A unique pilot program designed to help substance-abusing inmates become better fathers, Supporting Keiki of Incarcerated Parents is a program where inmate fathers engage in structured play groups with their young children, participate in group parenting sessions, and share in reading activities with their children.

WCF also provides general education programs, as well as Hawaiian language and culture leading to an associate of arts degree. Several in-facility worklines also help inmates acquire and practice good work habits and to learn useful skills. These worklines include food service, building maintenance, heavy equipment, farm, janitorial, educational tutoring and landscaping.

As of 12/02/06 all info is the same. If you see an error or think something needs to be added please PM any Hawaii Forum Moderator and we will fix/add it. Thanks!
