As CEO of Harbor City Services, a company that provides general services such as commercial moving, shredding, and document storage to institutions, John Herron is fully aware of the advantages of hiring people with criminal records. Specifically seeking ex-offender applicants with mental illnesses and substance abuse, John believes that business owners have a responsibility to re-engage with ex-offenders to prevent them from being driven into the 'underground economy'. John believes ex-offenders are particularly dedicated because they recognize the chance they have been given. By hiring people with criminal records, John affirms his business and social purpose to employ these individuals and provide them with opportunities that many other businesses are unwilling to provide.
