Located on a 68.6-acre site, the ECF Central Unit currently provides housing for 832 multi-custody adult residents, while the East Unit provides housing for 95 minimum custody residents. Ellsworth Correctional Facility’s mission is to safely and effectively contain and supervise residents, while also providing for community, employee and resident safety. Furthermore, the facility plays an integral role in reducing crime and its associated costs by providing residents 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-resident interaction. Moreover, the resident population is offered an opportunity to participate in a variety of facility-support and community-based work activities. Our ultimate goal is to encourage residents to participate in the specific programs and activities that will best prepare each resident 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.
