Located at 245 Walley Ave in New Haven, CT, New Haven CC carefully assigns inmates based on their custody level, considering factors like criminal history. New Haven CC offers diverse educational and vocational programs aimed at equipping offenders for successful reintegration into society and reducing recidivism. Through these initiatives, inmates gain skills and confidence, fostering personal growth and resilience.

The New Haven CC stands as a vital institution within Connecticut's correctional framework, catering primarily to pretrial offenders and serving the superior courts across several districts. Operating as a level 4 high-security facility, it prioritizes safety and security while providing essential services and programs aimed at offender rehabilitation and well-being.

Central to the facility's mission is the Mental Health Department, which offers a range of specialized programs to support offenders grappling with stress, depression, and other mental health challenges. From emotional literacy sessions to community groups and psycho-education initiatives, these programs aim to provide inmates with coping mechanisms and support networks essential for their overall well-being.

The Education Department at the New Haven Correctional Center is equally committed to facilitating offender growth and development. A notable program within this department is the initiative to identify non-English speaking inmates upon admission and refer them to educators specializing in teaching English as a second language. By addressing language barriers, the institution aims to empower inmates with essential communication skills that can enhance their prospects for successful reintegration into society upon release.

With a dedicated staff of 275 professionals, the New Haven Correctional Center operates with a focus on professionalism, efficiency, and compassion. The facility, which was opened on April 27, 1976, occupies 4.9 acres and comprises a main building, two dormitory units, and an outside detail unit. Over the years, it has undergone several expansions and enhancements, including the construction of dormitory units in 1991 and the addition of a 234-space parking garage in 1993.

In 1997, the facility further expanded with the opening of an outside detail unit, equipped with 12 beds to accommodate additional inmate housing needs. These expansions reflect the institution's ongoing commitment to adapting to evolving demands and providing adequate infrastructure to support its operations effectively.

As it continues its mission of rehabilitation and community safety, the New Haven Correctional Center remains steadfast in its dedication to promoting positive change, fostering offender accountability, and preparing individuals for successful reintegration into society.
