Facility Details

The New Hampshire Correctional Facility for Women (NHCFW), located in the town of Goffstown,houses primarily minimum, medium, and close custody state-sentenced female inmates.

As an outcome of the Department’s collaborative effort at the women’s prison,significant progress has been made toward expanding opportunities and services within the constraints of the existing facility. NHCFW offers a variety of programming, including high school courses, HiSet preparation, mental health classes, substance abuse recovery, and parenting. Of great significance, the NH legislature approved a capital budget request to build a new facility for state-sentenced women, which will provide the necessary space for programming, treatment and training to address the complex needs of the female inmate population.

January 1, 2018 population - 145 (161 including Strafford County contract)
