JBC Prison Tour - Crowley

By ANTHONY A. MESTAS
THE PUEBLO CHIEFTAIN

OLNEY SPRINGS - Some of the 1,600 inmates at the Crowley County Correctional Facility can tap a variety of programs to help them after they do their time.

The Colorado Legislature's Joint Budget Committee toured the facility Thursday, getting a better understanding of its programs from prison staff and state Department of Correction officials.

Four of the six JBC members were in attendance, Sen. Abel Tapia, D-Pueblo, Rep. Bernie Buescher, D-Grand Junction, Rep. Jack Pommer, D-Boulder, and Sen. Moe Keller, D-Jefferson County.

Tapia, who had never visited the prison before, said that the facility's vocational programs impressed him the most, particularly the Habitat for Humanity program.

The prison, which is owned and operated by Corrections Corporation of America, has partnered with Habitat for Humanity on a program at CCCF that is the largest in the nation with 120 students.

Through the program, offenders have the opportunity to volunteer with Habitat affiliates and homeowners in house construction.
