In December, 1994, the Montford Unit was opened in Lubbock County, beginning with a 400-man Trusty Camp. Prison trusties are those inmates whose nonviolent offenses, good behavior, and parole eligibility have earned them the privilege of working outside prison walls.
In 2010, Simple Acts Ministry helped open the first faith-based dorm at Montford. The dorm houses 50 prisoners who have been screened by the prison chaplain and who have agreed to follow a strict set of rules in order to stay.
