HELENA — Dozens of Helena women helped work on area Habitat for Humanity Homes part of “Women Build Week”.

The Helena Area Habitat for Humanity is currently working on six homes in the mountain view meadows neighborhood.

National Women Build Week now in its eight year, challenges women to devote at least one day constructing affordable housing.

Habitat for Humanity Homes are built with the help of the home owner and the community.

When completed, all six of the “Homes Habitat for Humanity” will go to single parent families.

Sophia Webb, Family Service Director said, “Of these six homes we are building right now in Helena, five of them are actually being built by single mothers, and we had our annual women build event last weekend, where bunch of women from the community came out and helped them build for a weekend and it was really cool to see.”

Webb continued, “obviously women are working on these homes every single day, but that event really draws attention to women you know that are building in the industry and the face that women are adversely affected by the need for housing.”

When completed all six of the homes Habitat for Humanity is working on will go to single parent families.
