Swinging the hammer for Habitat

Last week more than fifty local women, including teams from First Interstate Bank, US Bank and YouthBuild, worked on three homes in Sisters Habitat for Humanity's Village Meadows neighborhood as part of National Women Build Week hosted by Sisters Habitat for Humanity and Lowe's.

The women, and some men, painted, landscaped, installed cabinets and caulked during the Women Build Week which started 11 years ago through Habitat International to encourage women nationwide to devote at least one day to help build decent and affordable housing in local communities. Women have the strength and determination necessary to build Habitat houses, addressing the problem of affordable housing in a concrete way so that families can achieve stability and independence through safe, decent and affordable homes.

Many of the women who currently volunteer at the Sisters Habitat jobsite started out volunteering during Women Build weeks from previous years. Anyone interested in volunteering with Sisters Habitat can attend a volunteer orientation session June 2 at noon at the Habitat office, 141 W. Main Ave. Sisters Habitat for Humanity is dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally and worldwide through constructing, rehabilitating and preserving homes; by advocating for fair and just housing policies; and by providing training and access to resources to help families improve their shelter conditions.
