Women Build 2019 Coming Up!
For the 9th year, Hartford Area Habitat for Humanity is engaging women in to work together to build Habitat homes during this year’s fundraiser Women Build 2019. The event runs the whole month of May starting on May 1st with construction of 6 homes, (4) single family and (2) duplex style, on Main Street in Hartford. More than 18,000 women construction volunteers unite nationwide to build up their communities with Habitat homeowners during the annual Women Build fundraising event.
“We are excited to educate, inspire and empower women to advocate and help Habitat homeowners love where they live. Through our building efforts they can have an affordable house they can call home,” said Rose Vigdal, Individual Engagement Manager of Hartford Habitat. “We want to engage women of all skill levels to join their friends, families and neighbors to build up their communities and volunteer where women will gain invaluable skills to bring back and use in their everyday life.”
Women Build opportunities are available across the U.S. with Habitat for Humanity and any woman who wants to learn how to build and construct a home is invited to join the build. No experience is necessary. Volunteers work under the guidance of construction professionals, and also alongside other volunteers and future Habitat homeowners. Whether you are learning new skills or simply adding a few to your tool belt, this is a rewarding experience for all involved, improving the community and changing a family’s life.
