Hillsborough, NC Orange Correctional Center View
Orange Correctional Center in Hillsborough is a minimum security prison for adult males. The prison originally housed medium custody offenders and was converted to a minimum security unit in 1966. Piedmont Community College works with the prison to provide vocational classes in food service technology and light construction. Classes for adult education and preparation for the GED test are available. Individual tutoring is available through the Orange County Literacy Council volunteers who come regularly to the facility. Inmates may be assigned to Department of Transportation road crews, Community Work Program or work under contract for local government agencies. Offenders may also be assigned to unit jobs such as maintenance, kitchen, yard, clothes house or library. Offenders may participate in work release, leaving the prison for the part of the day to work for a business in the community. Study release is available at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. Offenders are strongly encouraged to participate in substance abuse treatment programs. The Alamance/Orange Prison Ministry funds a full-time chaplain at the facility and is raising funds to build a Religious Services Center. This group, along with other community organizations, is working closely with the Center in developing a transition program targeted toward offenders who have shown themselves to be serious about changing their lives and are working to do so.
