National Women Build Week Comes to an End

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WDEF) – Habitat for Humanity’s National Women Build Week is wrapping up this weekend, and the house they started working on just days ago has already come a long way.

This week, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Chattanooga Area teamed up with Lowe’s Heroes to help one special mother build an affordable place she and her son can call home.

More than 20 volunteers, both men and women, came together for the week-long event, which was created by the Habitat for Humanity’s Women Build Program.

“National Women Build week is not about excluding men, but it is about a call to action for women,” said Dominique Brandt, director of volunteer, sponsorship and special events, “To empower them to give them skills and the ability and the opportunity to become engaged in their communities.”

Brandt said the new home, on Newell Ave., should be ready should be complete in just a few more days.
