Hoosier Initiative For Re-Entry (HIRE)  

Re-entering society after being incarcerated for several years is not an easy thing to do especially if you’re having trouble finding employment. We’re here to help through the HIRE program.

HIRE’s goal is to help rehabilitated, trained, and determined participants become established in the community and introduce them back into the workforce.

HIRE Screening Process

There is a screening process in place – to qualify, candidates must have displayed a positive record of accomplishment, been identified as low or medium risk to re-offend by IDOC, not been a maximum-security offender or serious incarceration violations within the past year, or have any known gang affiliations.


HIRE Is Successful

HIRE originated in 2012 with just 300 employers, 700 Jobs, and a retention rate of 78%. Since then, it has grown to 861 employers, 1,415 jobs, a retention rate of 95%, and an average of wage of $10.01 per hour. Contact us today to see if you’re eligible for HIRE.
