About Mount Pleasant Correctional Facility (MPCF)
MPCF was established in 1976 as a temporary unit to hold 144 offenders. In 2016, MPCF was reclassified as a minimum secured facility with a focus on preparing offenders for reentry to the community. MPCF sits on 152 acres of grounds that is maintained by minimum-out offenders under the supervision of maintenance staff. Gardens produce close to 100,000 pounds of food that is used to feed the offenders, which is a $53,000 savings in food costs. These offenders also work for the local law enforcement agency by mowing lawns and waxing floors. They build houses for Habitat for Humanity and are on a road side clean-up crew. They wash and wax cars with proceeds going to the facility鈥檚 Hospice Program.
