Kate Barnard Correctional Center (KBCC), named for Oklahoma’s first Commissioner of Charities and Corrections, is a female minimum-security facility. It is located just next door to ODOC’s administrative building on North Martin Luther King Avenue in Oklahoma City. KBCC’s location was also home to the Hillside Community Corrections Center and Mabel Bassett Correctional Center.
The facility was originally known as the Kate Barnard Community Treatment Center for first-time incarcerated men. In 1992, ODOC converted it to an educational-level women’s facility. In 2012, ODOC moved its inmates to Hillside before it became Kate Barnard Correctional Center.
Many inmates lack education, a key component in avoiding re-incarceration. KBCC offers literacy courses, as well as Pre-High School Equivalency and High School Equivalency diplomas.
Substance Abuse Treatment
Nearly all state inmates have some form of substance abuse problem, and for many, that problem is closely related to their criminal behavior. To counteract this, KBCC's programming teaches inmates ways to avoid relapse and helps them develop cognitive, social, emotional and coping skills.
KBCC offers Thinking for a Change, Moral Reconation Therapy, and Associates 4 Success programs to address thinking, judgment errors, and relationships linked with criminal thinking/behavior.
Inmates can receive mail any time. Include in the address their name, DOC number and housing assignment if known.

Visitation hours vary by each facility. An inmate's security level dictates how many hours he or she may visit with approved visitors.
All inmate visitors must submit a “Visitor Request Form." You can download a copy here, or request one from the facility.
Background checks will be completed on everyone 18 or older. The inmate will notify you when the process is complete. The approval process takes approximately 8 weeks once the Visitor Request Form has been returned to KBCC.
