The offenders of Nampa CRC were given an opportunity to assist a local Vietnam Veteran with building his dream home. 

Jim Klassen, a resident of Fruitland Idaho, hasn’t lived in a home with a foundation for over a decade. 

Habitat for Humanity reached out to Nampa CRC to find some assistance with renovating a small concrete block building on Jim’s land into a livable home. 

Offenders with varying backgrounds in construction and general labor skills assisted in raising Jim’s roof getting him one step closer to having the home of his dreams.
