Mission & Vision
H.I.R.E.'s mission is to maximize the skills and opportunities for formerly incarcerated and system-impacted youth and adults in Orange County through employment, mentorship and community building.
We envision a unified Orange County where gaps in social, political, and economic opportunities are eliminated for formerly incarcerated and system-impacted youth and adults.
To realize the promise of our mission, we are committed to the following principles:
- Connect and unite Orange County stakeholders to support the reintegration of formerly incarcerated community members
- Use research informed and data driven strategies grounded in equity, and justice.
- Lift the voices of formerly incarcerated and system-impacted people
If you would like to join our network, partner on a project, learn about second chance hiring, or are yourself formerly incarcerated and seeking resources or employment, please contact us.
We look forward to connecting with you soon!
