The Pennsylvania Department of Military and Veterans Affairs includes the PA National Guard and serves all veterans in the state—including by operating six veterans homes throughout PA.

When one of the homes, Delaware Valley Veterans Home in Philadelphia, needed furniture to renovate their "Main Street," DMVA hired the inmates in Pennsylvania Correctional Industries. Inmates in the wood shop at SCI Rockview produced the furniture pictured above. When all the items are completed by PCI, the home will hold a dedication ceremony to celebrate.

Inmates also created furniture for DMVA's headquarters at Fort Indiantown Gap:
