South Carolina's Try At a Kinder, Gentler Prison System: A Tale In Two Parts

"Manning Reentry/Work Release Center used to have another name. Until 2016, this nearly 60-year-old prison on the outskirts of Columbia was called Manning Correctional.

That might seem like a minor change. It’s not. It was the South Carolina Department of Corrections’ (SCDC) way of saying to the public and to Manning’s inmates that the perception, treatment, and, ultimately, rehabilitation of the men who do time there was going to change.

“We’re bringing programs to the fore,” says Nena Walker-Staley, Manning’s former warden and current assistant director of programs, services, and reentry for SCDC. “For the inmates and for the community to be safer when they get out.”"
