Originally opened in 1989, the Sanders Estes Correctional Center houses minimum and medium security inmates. Inmates’ intensive program service needs are addressed. The facility offers a wide range of programmatic opportunities to better prepare offenders for re-entry into society. In January 2009, MTC was awarded a 6-year, 9-month contract to operate the facility.
The Sanders Estes Unit assists local communities by providing offender crews for city, county and state work projects. The facility donates about 1200 hours of inmate community service each month.
Sanders Estes also partners with a local animal shelter to provide offenders with an opportunity to participate in the rehabilitation of abused and neglected dogs. The program runs ten weeks and focuses on animal rehabilitation through companionship, nutrition, daily exercise routines and obedience training. Upon successful completion of the program, the animals are placed with a suitable family.
