Working to build futures

More than 40 women are also working to build futures for their Muskogee neighbors-in-need through Habitat for Humanity's "Women's Build" program. These ladies are exchanging their high heels and cell phones for tool belts and hammers.

More than 350 houses have been built by female work crews since the program started in 1991 in North Carolina. The team building this house in Muskogee is not your typical construction crew. They're women of all races, ages and all walks of life teachers, stock brokers, a massage therapist, a professional angler and a former Miss Muskogee.
Even though some have little or no experience, they say the program is a unique opportunity to work outside of their field and gain experience in construction. The crews work about eight hours on Saturdays only. This is their fourth week working and they expect to have the house completed by October.

If you would like to get involved with Habitat's Women's Build program, they are always looking for volunteers. Call the Tulsa office at 592-4224 for more information.
