Located at 379 Collins Rd in Manson, NC, Warren CI carefully assigns inmates based on their custody level, considering factors like criminal history. Warren CI 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.

Opened in 1997, Warren Correctional Institution (Warren CI) stands as a testament to the potential for progress within the prison system. This mixed-custody facility in North Carolina houses male offenders of varying security levels, offering them a unique blend of rehabilitation programs and vocational training opportunities.

Warren CI prides itself on preparing its residents for successful reintegration into society. From minimum-security individuals to those needing close supervision, the facility caters to diverse needs. At its core lies the Correctional Enterprise program, where inmates gain valuable job skills and build self-confidence through the manufacturing of soap and cleaning products sold in the community. This program not only offers marketable skills but also instills a sense of purpose and contribution.

Education plays a crucial role in rehabilitation at Warren CI. Offenders can pursue vocational training and educational courses, culminating in the chance to earn a GED. For some, the unique At Both Ends of the Leash (ABEL) program provides a particularly inspiring opportunity. Working alongside dedicated staff, they train service animals for individuals with disabilities, forging meaningful connections and developing valuable skills.

The history of Warren CI reflects its commitment to positive change. By consolidating five smaller prisons, it streamlined operations and created a more centralized hub for rehabilitation. The facility itself has grown organically, with construction projects completed by inmates under professional supervision. The janitorial products plant, relocated from another facility, exemplifies this collaborative approach, providing both valuable training and tangible products.

From its inception, Warren CI has aimed to be more than just a place of confinement. It's a hub of opportunity, where individuals are equipped with the tools and skills they need to rebuild their lives. Through diverse programs, a focus on marketable skills, and a unique community spirit, Warren CI strives to foster positive transformation and pave the way for a brighter future for its residents.

Visitation Information

Visits to NCDPS offenders are by appointment only. Call the prison where the offender is housed to schedule an appointment. Visitors should call the prison the day before a scheduled visit to confirm the facility's visitation status. Also, video visitation now is available at most but not all prisons, so family and friends may be able to do a virtual visit if they prefer. Call the prison for additional information on video visitation at the facility.
Visitation by family and friends is encouraged and can make a positive difference during an offender's time in prison. Prison staff understand the importance of offenders maintaining contact with their family and friends. However, offenders can not be assigned to specific facilities within the prison system for the convenience of visitation.

For more information regarding prisons and visitation, please read the Handbook for Family and Friends of Offenders.
The increased safety and security measures are implemented to address, and ultimately eliminate, the introduction of contraband into state prisons. Any refusal to comply with all search procedures will result in the denial of entrance into the facility. Cell phones are considered contraband and are prohibited from all prison facilities. Appropriate attire is required.
