Women Build brings together women from all walks of life to address the housing crisis facing millions of people worldwide. Women Build challenges women to take hammers in hand to help eliminate poverty housing. Each May, leading up to Mother’s Day, thousands of women volunteers across the nation join in Women Build days at Habitat affiliates.
GIRL POWER! May 6 thru June, 2017
Central Oklahoma Habitat is about more than just building houses. You can volunteer individually or bring your friends and employees. It’s a great time for everyone! No experience building a home? No worries! We have on-site training, and our highly skilled construction team leaders are always available to provide information or to lend a helping hand. Women Build volunteers gain the confidence and skills needed to effectively contribute to Central Oklahoma Habitat’s mission while gaining knowledge they can use in their day-to-day lives.
This year COHFH will host a Women Build Reception prior to the kick-off. Register Today!
The excitement in the air at our home dedications is palpable. As a volunteer, you have a front-row seat to the transformation in our homeowners, especially the children. The family has a secure place to call home and the children are excited to have a bedroom and a backyard that provide a safer place to play.
Research has shown that decent housing and homeownership improves health, increases children’s educational achievement, and strengthens community ties.
