Located on a 68.6-acre site, the ECF Central Unit currently provides housing for 832 multi-custody adult male inmates, while the East Unit provides housing for 95 minimum custody inmates. Ellsworth Correctional Facility’s mission is to safely and effectively contain and supervise inmates, while also providing for community, employee and inmate safety. Furthermore, the facility plays an integral role in reducing crime and its associated costs by providing inmates with a means to improve their conditions through involvement in traditional correctional programming, faith-based activities, cognitive-based activities, exposure to "real life" skills and effective staff-inmate interaction. Moreover, the inmate population is offered an opportunity to participate in a variety of facility-support and community-based work activities. Our ultimate goal is to encourage inmates to participate in the specific programs and activities that will best prepare each inmate for release and increase their opportunity for a successful law-abiding life, positively impacting not only the offenders’ lives, but also their families’ lives and the lives of all who reside in those communities.
