Women Build Week

Teams of Women volunteers take over Habitat job-sites across the United States and Canada during the first week in May.

Habitat for Humanity’s National Women Build Week is a week-long event created by its Women Build program that invites women to devote at least one day to help families build strength, stability and independence through housing. The week is meant to spotlight the home ownership challenges faced by women. Lowe’s donated $2 million to Habitat’s 2017 National Women Build Week and will provide the support of Lowe’s Heroes employee volunteers. The home improvement chain will also conduct how-to clinics at stores to teach volunteers construction skills.

More than 300 Habitat for Humanity organizations across the country are hosting Women Build projects this year. Locally staff from Kawneer and Financial Credit Network joined other volunteers to paint a small two bedroom, one bath home on North Court in Visalia.
