Located at 1144 Illinois Rte 29 in Taylorville, IL, Taylorville CC carefully assigns inmates based on their custody level, considering factors like criminal history. Taylorville 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.

Taylorville CC, established in 1990, serves as a minimum-security adult male facility in Christian County, situated approximately 30 miles southeast of Springfield. Notably, the facility gained distinction in 1995 by being designated as a security threat group (STG)-free institution, housing offenders unaffiliated with any STGs. This initiative has proven effective in population management, as STG-free inmates exhibit fewer rule infractions and respond well to management techniques. Complementing this strategy, the facility offers a range of programs aimed at enhancing inmates' life and work skills, thereby increasing their prospects for successful reintegration into society upon release.

The prison's programs play a crucial role in redirecting and refining inmate behavior constructively. Educational opportunities abound, allowing inmates to pursue adult basic education and earn their GED. Vocational programs include partnerships with organizations like Habitat for Humanity, offering training in various construction occupations, culinary arts, horticulture, and commercial custodial maintenance. Furthermore, inmates have access to parenting classes, self-esteem counseling, substance abuse and sex offender treatment programs, contributing to their rehabilitation journey.

Inmate Programs encompass a broad spectrum, ranging from academic and vocational pursuits to support services and therapy. Volunteer services such as Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous are available, along with initiatives like Project Storybook facilitated by Lutheran Social Services. Additional offerings include Lifestyle Redirection, Substance Abuse, Anger Management, self-esteem, and Sex Offender Programs, all aimed at addressing specific rehabilitative needs. The presence of a comprehensive library and law library, chaplaincy services, leisure time activities, and group therapy sessions further enrich the inmate experience. Noteworthy programs include the Incarcerated Veterans Transition Program, Stress Reduction, and the Young Offender Program, all contributing to the holistic approach adopted by Taylorville Correctional Center towards inmate rehabilitation and community reintegration.
