“Let me express a sincere thank you for your company’s handling, attention, and care of the inmates in the facility. My close friend is at your facility and she says since your company took over the facility, everything across the board has simply been better. Better food, better administration, better conditions, cleanliness, etc. Thank you.”

~ Close Friend of Inmate, Lockhart Correctional Facility

“The opportunity to attend Job Corps leaves me peacefully assured I won’t have to worry about my future as I have so many different fields of work to choose from.”
