SILER CITY — Through knocking down stereotypes and building up women in the community, Women Build adds a few tools to your belt.

This year, 83 volunteers spent three days building Chatham Habitat for Humanity homes in Siler City. These volunteers included Chatham Habitat homeowners, mother-daughter teams, professional contractors, realtors, and county employees.

Chatham Habitat’s Women Build events have women construct safe, strong homes for families, in order to create more affordable housing options in their community. The event also encourages women to help with construction – a previously male-dominated field – and empowers them to learn and showcase their talents.

“[My favorite part was] meeting other women in business in Chatham and long-time volunteers and staff — while learning new skills and gaining insight on the community, families in need, and the organization that’s mobilizing community support and engagement,” said Ashley Andrews, a first-time Women Build participant.

The following local businesses and organizations sponsored Women Build, collectively raising more than $3,000 for affordable housing in Chatham County.
