Building Knowledge: Community Education Series (Free)

Because we believe building a strong community begins with strong families and homes, we’re offering a six-part series developed to help you build the knowledge needed to deal with some of life’s challenging processes.

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. Six sessions will focus on a variety of processes, such as buying a home, credit building and repair, property taxes and insurance, home maintenance and weatherization, retirement and investing, 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!

Women Build

Since 2010, our Women Build program has offered hands-on learning and training opportunities to help hundreds of female volunteers transform our community and make a lasting difference in the lives of our Habitat homeowners.

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.
