Habitat for Humanity is famous for building homes. What many don’t realize is that Habitat for Humanity also helps incarcerated men at the Crowley County Correctional Facility rebuild their lives.
Here in the Roaring Fork Valley, our customers usually visit ReStore 2.0 looking for gently used furniture, appliances or building materials. Recently, we’ve been surprising many of them with news that they can now purchase affordable new custom cabinets right here in the store.
ReStore 2.0 is able to offer this gorgeous custom cabinetry thanks to Habitat for Humanity Colorado’s WeBuild program. For 20 years, this program has been helping rehabilitate incarcerated men at the Crowley County Correctional Facility by teaching them fine woodworking skills. Those skills are then used to create custom cabinetry and roof trusses for Habitat for Humanity homes across Colorado.
To further promote the success of WeBuild, Habitat for Humanity Colorado has partnered with over half a dozen ReStore locations throughout the state to sell the program’s custom cabinetry to the public. ReStore 2.0 is proud to be one of these partners and excited to give the Roaring Fork Valley access to the beautiful hand-crafted cabinets and bathroom vanities the program provides.
