Women Build empowers women to take action to end poverty housing conditions. The more people we can train to become effective volunteers, the better equipped we will be to fight poverty housing. Women Build brings together women from all walks of like to build homes. Women Build is not about excluding men, but including women and opening new doors of opportunity. No special skills are needed. Training is included and so is lunch! Come as an individual or bring a group. It's a great way to spend a Saturday. Call 828.452.7960 to sign up or for more information.
