Women needed to build with Habitat for Humanity

We would like to invite you to join us for the 2012 Women Build. Construction will begin on Saturday, May 5th, with a wall-raising, and finish later this summer. This is a rewarding opportunity for women of color to come together and help provide a qualified family the chance to purchase a safe, affordable home.

The Links, Inc. and Wells Fargo have already pledged their support for this build. You, too, are needed to build this home.

All Habitat projects are about empowerment; this project empowers the women of Des Moines to make a non-traditional and tangible effort to break the cycle of poverty for a hard-working family and their children. It uniquely provides women an opportunity to learn new skills and defy stereotypes while addressing the issue of poverty housing. It provides an opportunity for women to connect with other women volunteers and make a real difference to a Des Moines’ family.

We are currently seeking teams of 12 women to join together and volunteer on the jobsite. Volunteer opportunities are available Wednesday through Saturday, the work day last from 8:15am to 4:00pm. Please call the Habitat office, at

471-8686 for more information on how you can volunteer or donate.

Whatever your involvement, what a great opportunity this is to make all of us into women of power and hope!
