The Waiawa Correctional Facility (WCF) is a 334-bed, minimum-security prison for sentenced male inmates. WCF provides an environment that helps inmates successfully re-enter the community from prison. All inmates participate in education or substance abuse treatment programs.

The WCF has 240 beds that are devoted to KASHBOX, an intensive residential substance abuse treatment program for inmates with serious substance abuse problems.  Supporting Keiki of Incarcerated Parents is a unique pilot program designed to help male inmates with substance abuse issues become better fathers.  This program allows the inmate to participate in parenting groups, and structured playgroups and reading activities with their children.

The WCF also provides general education programs, which allows inmates to work towards and associate of arts degree. Also, in-facility worklines such as food service, building maintenance, heavy equipment, farm, janitorial, educational tutoring, and landscaping, help inmates acquire skills, and practice good work habits.
