Through these initiatives, inmates gain skills and confidence, fostering personal growth and resilience.

York Correctional Institution - Inmate Programs

The York CI is a high-security facility. It serves as the state's only institution for female inmates. It serves all superior courts in Connecticut and manages all pretrial and sentenced female offenders, whatever their security level. The programming units at the facility have an extensive array of positive interventions for the population, including the 80-bed intensive, inpatient drug treatment unit, the Marilyn Baker House. A Hospice program trains inmate volunteers to provide end of life care to fellow offenders.

In June 2005, the Charlene Perkins Reentry Center was dedicated in honor of a past deputy warden. The 100-bed stand-alone unit assists in preparing appropriate female offenders, who are within 18 months with skills they will need for community reentry. In February 2016, this unit became the 'Keys to Success' Community Reintegration Unit; a specifically designed program of support to and accountability by applicable inmates cultivating their path toward successful community reintegration.

The Department's Correctional Enterprise of Connecticut manages a program based at this facility in which offenders are employed on projects including tailoring offender uniforms.

Girl Scouts Behind Bars, for the daughters of incarcerated women, reflects recent research that enhanced visitation may reduce the possibility of the mother returning to prison and/or the daughter becoming an offender.

The Mommy and Me program provides an enhanced family-focused visitation for mothers, children and their caregivers. In order to participate, mothers are required to be enrolled in or have completed a parenting program at York CI and their children must be on their approved visitor list. Additional information on the program can be accessed on Page 71 on the York compendium or by contacting the program coordinator at 860-451-3128.

Female offenders have spoken to many school and local organizations, as well as at-risk-youth. Community service crews have assisted at the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, Camp Hazen, the New London Housing Authority, and OpSail 2000.

The facility is also home to the Second Chance Corral, a partnership with the Connecticut Department of Agriculture which provides restorative shelter for abused farm animals which are cared for by the inmate population.

The York Correctional Institution of the Connecticut Department of Correction has received international attention for the programs and management of its offender population.

In June 2011, with the closing of the adjoining Gates Correctional Institution, an annex housing 225 men at the time was renamed the Niantic Annex and was transferred to the supervision of the Warden of York Correctional Institution. This was done to insure continued support of the surrounding communities with inmate work crews as well as facilitate the reintegration of offenders who are from southeastern Connecticut.

In January 2016, the Niantic Annex was closed due to a continued decline in Connecticut's prison population.
