National Women Build is May 3-11


More than 13,000 volunteers are expected to partner with 300 Habitat for Humanity affiliates across the country to help build affordable housing in their local communities in recognition of National Women Build Week, May 3-11. Now in its seventh year, National Women Build Week challenges women to devote at least one day to the effort to eliminate poverty housing.

In Durham, on Saturday, May 3rd, 40-80 women volunteers, including TROSA members, will work on four build sites. Longtime event partner Lowe’s prepared the volunteers with an in-store how-to clinic the previous weekend.


Habitat Success Stories

Pearlie's home was so damaged that neighbors thought it was abandoned. Habitat partnered with the City of Durham to replace Pearlie's roof, a damaged wall, and exterior siding. Pearlie said, "It lifts my spirits. Habitat volunteers are beautiful people."
