HSE in the Jail

When inmates buy phone cards, call "Collect," or purchase items from the commissary, the profit goes into a fund to benefit inmates called the Inmate Welfare Funds.  These funds provide the educational program in the jail.

Whether they finish while serving their time or after being released, LearningQuest is there to get them the education they need to pass the High School Equivalency test.


Inmates send a request form to the HSE instructor for assessment to enroll in literacy tutoring or the HSE program. As a Inmates also receive Transition Services for success after release.
