Hernando Correctional Institution, beginning on October 2, 2013, houses only Adult female inmates that are enrolled in the Faith and Character Based program.

The Faith- and Character-Based Correctional Initiative is an innovative effort to reduce recidivism and disciplinary infractions in correctional institutions by offering character-based programming in a positive environment to inmates committed to inner transformation. This initiative offers inmates a variety of activities and classes (both religious and secular) focused on personal growth and character development. The religious preference of the inmate is not one of the eligibility criteria for inmate participation
