CCI has been beneficial to me in many ways. It has allowed me to save money for my eventual release. It has also given me the opportunity to buy holiday and birthday gifts for my child. CCI has also given me a sense of purpose while incarcerated. A reason to get out of bed in the morning, to try harder at being a better worker and person than I was the day before. Another great benefit of being employed with CCI is the ability to practice my trade and gain experience and confidence in the welding shop. Upon my release I am certain I will have no trouble finding employment thanks to my experience in the welding shop and my involvement with CCI.
