MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Despite Monday’s heat, women rocked tool belts in West St. Paul and built a home.
It was all part of the Women Build project, a Habitat for Humanity program.
Women (subcontractors, volunteers and a female project manager) all worked together to build a home for another woman.
The new home owner will put in 300 to 500 hours of “sweat equity.”
The event was the seventeenth Women Build project for Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity.
Habitat for Humanity says a project like this is empowering for women; it builds their skills and shows that they can get a job in the construction industry.
