Fishnet Chaplaincy is an independent para-church ministry under the direction of Chaplain Bonnie Holcombe, a minister and member of Windward Worship Center. The Chaplaincy is part of Fishnet Ministries International, which has a broad-based ministry to teach, preach, promote, establish, and conduct charitable works. FMI operates as an interdenominational entity enabling them to partner with many groups to meet the needs of the incarcerated and their families. These groups provide various services through the only faith-based treatment program in Hawaii, the Total Life Recovery Program. This program was opened in July 2003 with the approval of the Attorney General’s Office.
