COFFEE-CREEK-CORRECTIONAL-FACILITY-300x161Coffee Creek Correctional Facility is located in Wilsonville, Oregon. It is an American prison for women that is operated by the Oregon Department of Corrections. Coffee Creek Correctional Facility is a fairly recent prison, opened in 2001. It can house over 1600 female inmates in its campus of 108 acres.

It is a minimum and medium security facility that is widely known for its various programs that aim to teach the inmates different skills they may find useful once they leave prison. Coffee Creek Correctional Facility was built in response to the need to replace the Oregon Women’s Correctional Center that was located in Salem as it only had room for 200 inmates and the population was growing significantly. The construction of this facility started in the first months of 2000 with a budget of over $171 million.

The construction project was considered the top public project in Oregon in 2002 by the Northwest Construction Magazine. It was built by Hoffman Construction Company following the plans designed by DLR Group. New prisoners are classified according to their age, behavior, health and criminal record history once they enter Coffee Creek Correctional Facility.
