At Crowley County Correctional Facility in Olney Springs, Colorado, dozens of vocational programs are helping inmates prepare for life after release. One of those programs teaches the fundamentals of cabinetry, giving inmates valuable skills and work experience. To top it all off, the finished cabinets are donated to Habitat for Humanity.
