Our Mission

  • Provide occupational and personal development training for incarcerated offenders
  • Reduce recidivism rates
  • Provide quality products and services
  • Support a strong South Carolina economy while serving its citizens

How does the program work?

Traditional: Incarcerated offenders manufacture goods and provide specific services for qualified agencies and non-profits.

Service: In accordance with SC Code of Laws 24-1-290 & 24-1-295, incarcerated offenders repair, replace original manufactured items, package, sort, recycle, label and provide similar work that is not original equipment manufacturing.

Prison Industries Enhancement (PIE): A federally certified prison industry program that places incarcerated offenders in realistic work environments, pays them prevailing wages, and gives them a chance to develop marketable skills that will increase their potential for rehabilitation and meaningful employment on release.

All incarcerated offenders participate in these programs on a volunteer basis.
