Overview

LCMHF houses the young offender program within the Kansas Department of Corrections (KDOC). The program is designed for males age 18-25 who have been sentenced to the custody of the Sectary of Corrections. The facility provides programs that have been shown to reduce recidivism in the target population.

LCMHF consists of a medium-security central unit with 310 beds and a minimum-security West Unit with 288 beds. LCMHF is also an admission point for southwest Kansas for inmates serving a probation sanction issued by their sentencing court for a 120- or 180-day prison sanction.

The purpose of the facility’s West Unit is to provide facility support and community work programs for minimum-custody inmates and for community transition for inmates who have successfully participated in the young offender program.

As with other facilities under the management of the Secretary of Corrections, education, health services and food services are provided through contracts.
