The inmates housed at Orlando CRC located at 2011 Mercy Dr in Orlando, FL are placed according to their custody level (determined by a number of factors including the past criminal history and the length of their sentence). There are ample educational and vocational training programs for all inmates, especially ones that show a willingness to learn new things that will prepare them for a better life when they are released. The mission is to promote and prepare the offender to leave in better shape than when they arrived, giving them the best chance to never come back and thus lower the state's recidivism rate.

The Orlando Bridge Community Release Center has program beds for 152 male community release from a FL DOC prison under the direction of Sammy Hill.
