• Prison Build Program builds partnerships The MDOC Prison Build Program is again partnering with the Michigan State Housing Development Authority (MSHDA) to help provide low-cost housing for families in need.
The mission of the Prison Build
Program is to assist Habitat for Humanity, local units of government and
nonprofit organizations in providing housing and related products for low-income
families through the use of inmate labor.
The Prison Build Program educates and provides
hands-on training to inmates in the building trades and horticulture industries.
The inmates construct walls, cabinets, trim and other housing components;
build entire homes; design and create interior products; and devise landscape
plans and provide the needed horticulture products.
Inmates are linked to employers to find jobs
and to aftercare programs to assist them in their reintegration after
release from prison.
