Women Build 2024: May 11th from 9 to 1

Women Build is a special kind of girls’ day out where women empower themselves and one another by learning new skills while working on Habitat homes. It’s all about women helping other women and families build strength, stability and independence through safe, affordable housing. There’s no experience necessary to participate. You’ll work under the guidance of skilled supervisors and seasoned construction volunteers, and also alongside other female volunteers and our future Habitat homeowners. Bring your friends or family with you or come on your own and make new friends. The atmosphere is collaborative and friendly. We’re focused on empowerment, education and fun. Come ready to learn, leave with a smile and a tool belt full of new skills.

Building Knowledge: Community Education Series (Free)

Chemung County Habitat for Humanity is proud to host BUILDING KNOWLEDGE, presenting you with an opportunity to gather and learn information about topics that may seem overwhelming without a little guidance. Four sessions will focus on a variety of processes, such as building a household budget, learning city code requirements, drafting a will, home maintenance/winterization, and so much more! Guest speakers will be on hand to offer expertise and answer questions along the way. We’ll share resources from community organizations that are ready and willing to provide advice and assistance geared toward your needs and goals. Your community is here to help you build a better life for you and your family.

Attend as many sessions as you’d like!
