Women build: affordable housing for families in need
Habitat for Humanity’s Women Build is a program that empowers women to take action against affordable housing shortages by constructing homes and providing safe, decent, and affordable housing for low-income families. The program offers women the opportunity to learn new construction skills, build relationships with like-minded volunteers, and make a significant impact in their community. Women Build encourages women to play a more prominent role in addressing the housing crisis by providing a safe and supportive environment to develop their skills and confidence in construction. With Women Build, Habitat for Humanity aims to help women break the cycle of poverty and create a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
This year’s team helped construct homes for Mary Hawkins, a plumbing apprentice set to graduate this May, and Carletha and Eugene Nathan, parents to five grown children and grandparents to 20 children, who had a previous unpleasant experience when they tried to purchase a home.
