HCTC's Mentoring Program is credited and highlighted by leading analyst firm Social Capital Valuations.

HCTC's Mentoring Program is credited of ‘a return on taxpayers’ investment of $4.34 for every $1.00 invested in the program’ by leading analyst firm Social Capital Valuations (SCV). Using data from a University of Washington study on Communities That Care, SCV was able to credit HCTC with cost savings associated with students’ decreased involvement with the criminal justice system and decreased victimization. 

The report also highlighted the added benefits of HCTC's program for both the participating students and the community. High school graduates earn higher incomes than their peers who drop out. The added income, of course benefits the graduates. However, it also benefits the community economically, by increasing tax revenue and decreasing public assistance costs.
