PAYSON Habitat for Humanity of Utah County will be partnering with Utah Correctional Industries and Habitat's RV Care-A-Vanner Program during the first part of June to build a four-bedroom home with Rochelle Grimaud and her three children. The home at 388 S. 600 East will be completed in two weeks with the help of out-of-state Care-A-Vanner volunteers and UCI work crews.
The home is currently being framed at the Utah State Prison and will be moved on June 2. A celebration is planned for that day at noon at the home site. The public is invited.
UCI is Utah's prison industries program. Under the direction of the Utah Department of Corrections, UCI operates productive enterprises utilizing inmate labor to benefit tax-supported entities and other organizations. UCI is a self-supporting program, deriving revenues through sales of program services.
The RV Care-A-Vanner program, which is coordinated through Habitat International headquarters in Americus, Ga., matches volunteers who travel in recreation vehicles to local Habitat affiliates in need of volunteer support. The Care-A-Vanners camp their RVs while working shoulder to shoulder with the local Habitat staff and future Habitat homeowners, and come from all over North America and from all walks of life.
