The primary mission of the Richard J. Donovan Correctional Facility (RJDCF) is to provide housing and supervision for inmates classified as minimum - high custody, encompassing a Minimum Support Facility; one (1) Level III, General Population facility, one (1) Level IV, Sensitive Needs Yard (SNY) facility, and two (2) Level III, SNY facilities. Designed as a training and work-oriented facility, the RJDCF provides vocational, academic, and industrial programs.
Institution Details and Programs

The Institutional Hearing Program (IHP) at the RJDCF is designed to prepare inmates, who are illegal immigrants, for release to the United States Department of Homeland Security's custody and return to their country of origin.

Self-Help and Inmate Leisure Time Activity Groups include Narcotics Anonymous, Alcoholics Anonymous, Criminal and Gang Anonymous.
Institutional Juvenile Diversion Programs include Convicts Reaching Out to People (CROP). Inmates participate in face-to-face discussions with juveniles explaining the downfalls of drug use, gang life, and criminal thinking, while advising on how to avoid life in prison.

Rehabilitative inmate leisure activities include social, educational, recreational, and mentoring groups. The RJDCF offers study in the areas of Recycling and Green Industries; Food Handling; Coastline College; Creative Writing; and the highly acclaimed Thinking for a Change. Inmates may also participate in a Veteran's Group and other volunteer-led community service activities.

Academic opportunities include Literacy and Adult Basic Education through GED. Vocational opportunities include the Machine Shop, Welding, and HVAC.

Religious services are provided for inmates of all denominations. The RJDCF employs a Catholic Priest, a Protestant Chaplain, a Muslim Imam, a Native American Spiritual Leader, and a Jewish Rabbi. Additionally, nearly (430) volunteers provide volunteer-led religious and other programs such as KAIROS, Alternatives to Violence/Hands of Peace, the Urban Ministries Institute (TUMI), and many other faith-based programs. Additionally, California Prison Industries Authority (CALPIA) employs inmates at the RJDCF in its laundry, bakery, and casual shoe factory.
Inmate Healthcare

The healthcare providers here at the Richard J. Donovan Correctional Facility are aware that friends and family members have a special interest in the health and well-being of their loved ones. However, information can only be shared with those individuals that the patient has given authorization to receive. Please advise the patient to obtain an Authorization for Release of Protected Health Information form (CDCR-7385) from a healthcare provider. Once completed and on file, information can be shared with you. Once approved, you may call 619-661-6500, extension 7088, and a representative will return your call within five business days.
Special Notes

The R.J. Donovan Correctional Facility was named for the late Assemblyman and Judge Richard J. Donovan, who sponsored legislation to build a State Correctional Facility in the San Diego area. However, the Honorable Donovan passed away before the institution was built.
