Building Houses, Building Character: Incarcerated Teens Build Homes
HARLINGEN — Incarcerated teens and those in the Army bootcamp are building houses for those in need. The program is through the Darrell Hester Juvenile Detention Center. Each home takes about three to four months to build, weather permitting. At the end of the build the teens hand over the keys to the new owners of the home. Currently the teens are working on their sixth house that will be assigned to a family in the Harlingen area.
