Women Build – An Integral Component
Habitat for Humanity holds an annual Women Build – a home that is led and built by women. Women from all walks of life, from skilled to unskilled, to fully construct a home with a local family in need. This event has been one of GAHH’s most rewarding events as the friendships developed are everlasting.
You are never too old or young (but must be 18 for insurance reasons) to come together. We have had several retirees who have never built a home before become annual members of the build. Of course, if you haven’t done one before, you are certainly welcome and wanted.
The Women Build home is generously sponsored by local donors. The project actively engages women volunteers in the construction of the Habitat home and also featured clinics on home construction basics for the women participating in the build. The Habitat’s Women Build program involves women in construction to address the problem of substandard housing.
