Women's Facilities (WOM) house four categories of female offenders in two separate buildings. The new Gloria McDonald Awaiting Trial and Medium Security Facility opened in December of 2010, and the Minimum Security and Work Release inmates are temporarily being housed in the old GM building. When renovations are complete, they will be moving to the Bernadette Building, next door to the new GM building.

The Rhode Island Department of Corrections' Women's Facilities are dedicated to the protection of society by providing appropriate, safe, and humane control of female offenders and women awaiting trial and also by encouraging and assisting women, through treatment and educational programs, to become productive and law-abiding members of the community. They are dedicated to promoting the health and well-being of inmates and staff and encouraging positive interactions between staff and offenders. They respect the unique social, cultural, and gender-specific needs of female offenders and address those needs with opportunities to treat them.
