Wake Correctional Center, in Raleigh, is a minimum security prison for adult males. The prison currently houses 414 inmates.

Wake was established in 1966 as the Community Correctional Center, a 104-bed pre-release facility designed to reintegrate long-term offenders back into the community during their last 90 days of imprisonment. In 1969, the prison became the Wake Advancement Center, a prison designated to provide pre-release training for inmates. A modular dormitory was added in 1977, but has since closed.

The prison was converted from an Advancement Center and expanded in 1988 to house an additional 200 inmates as part of the $28.5 million Emergency Prison Facilities Development program. Another 100 beds were added as part of the $87.5 million prison construction program authorized in 1993 and opened in November 1994.

Wake Correctional Center is primarily a “work” unit in that 80% of the inmate population leaves the facility each day for incentive wage work assignments in various state agencies in the Wake County area, i.e. the Governor's Mansion, Lt. Governor's Office, N.C. State Fairgrounds, Employment Security Commission, Department of Administration, Division of Motor Vehicles, and Department of Transportation. Inmates also work at other Adult Correction facilities such as NCCIW, Central Prison, Johnston Correctional Center, Franklin Correctional Center and Enterprise operations. There are also approximately 50 inmates nearing parole or release that participate on the work release program, leaving the facility to work for businesses in the community. Incentive Wage work assignments are also available at the prison in the food service, clothes house, janitorial, landscaping, maintenance, canteen and recreation areas.

Wake Technical Community College works with the prison to provide full-time vocational classes in Certified Communications, Heating/Air Conditioning and Electrical Wiring. Part-time classes in Blueprint Reading and Horticulture are also available. Educational classes in GED, college level courses and college correspondence classes are available to the inmate population.

The Family Enrichment Program is offered through Vinebrook Family Services and provides an opportunity for the inmates and their families to work with counselors on a wide range of marriage and family issues.

Inmates may participate in worship services, Bible Studies and various spiritual discussion groups on-site. Wake Correctional Center has volunteer chaplains who minister to the inmates.
