MCF-Faribault consists of a medium-security facility and two minimum-security units located outside the secure perimeter. With a combined population of over 2,000 adult males, MCF-Faribault is the largest facility in the DOC system.

Notable features:

  • MINNCOR Industries, including wood furniture manufacturing, laundry, cleaning products, and subcontract work.
  • A 172-bed treatment unit for alcohol and drug abuse
  • A unit designed to house geriatric and other offenders who are unable to care for themselves in a normal correctional environment
  • A partnership with the non-profit Can-Do-Canines program uses offenders to train service dogs for people who live in Minnesota communities. An average of 30 dogs are trained each year.
  • The facility was originally a state hospital that was shut down in the 1980’s. In 1989, the Legislature authorized its conversion to correctional use.
