SANTA FE, NM - The New Mexico DOC moved 91 inmates into the recently renovated Camino Nuevo Correctional Center in Albuquerque last Friday.

The move to the minimum-security facility is ideal for the Level I and Level II offenders as they were temporarily housed in the Regional Correctional Center in downtown Albuquerque.

Camino Nuevo was once used as a high-security juvenile detention center, run by the state Children Youth and Families Department.

Corrections Corporation of America will operate the 192-inmate facility that will provide women-centered rehabilitation programs, including:

-Parenting skills for incarcerated mothers
-Education/Vocational classes
-Work Release
-Family Reunification
-Therapeutic Community (substance abuse treatment)
-Cosmetology
-Re-entry planning (helping inmate plan for future after prison)
-Over-night visiting for mothers and their children

Warden Barbara Wagner has 37 years of experience in corrections - 20 of which was spent working with female inmates.  Her last job was warden of the San Diego Correctional Center.
