Prairie Gold Homes
Program Description

Prairie Gold Homes, Inc. is a nonprofit corporation that benefits all Nebraskans by helping inmates gain job skills and become productive citizens while building affordable, energy-efficient housing for our communities.

The organization operates an innovative job training program in collaboration with the Nebraska Department of Correctional Services. The program combines classroom instruction with hands-on skills training. Graduates receive a nationally-recognized construction industry certificate, enhancing their employability upon release.

The homes are built with universal design features like extra-wide doorways and lower positioned light switches. By adding options like a roll-in shower and lever handles they become a cost-effective, low-maintenance housing solution for seniors or people with other accessibility challenges. They are built in one piece at the Prairie Gold Homes production facility at Cornhusker State Industries in Lincoln and are delivered to the homebuyer's lot.

When sold, the modular units are transported to the developerís building site for placement on basements or crawlspaces and final finishing work by local contractors. The homes can be duplexed and customized with additions like extra rooms, a garage or carport.

Take a virtual tour or visit the photo gallery to see what a Prairie Gold Home can offer you.
