Habitat for Humanity made by inmates

Special to the Sky-Hi News
Grand County, CO Colorado

Cabinets installed in the Habitat for Humanity house under construction in Hot Sulphur Springs were made in partnership with the Crowley County Correctional Facility, which has operated the Prison Partnership Program since 1999 in conjunction with Colorado Habitat for Humanity.

The program allows inmates at the correctional facility to learn construction trades and fine woodworking while providing cabinets and roof trusses for Habitat for Humanity projects statewide at-cost.

The Hot Sulphur Springs Habitat house also used trusses from the Prison Partnership. In fact, the past five Habitat houses built in Grand County have used the prison-built trusses and cabinets.
