March 8: International Women’s Day

Celebrating Women Volunteers

March 8, 2019 is International Women’s Day. As part of the mission of Habitat for Humanity, we engage community members to give them volunteer opportunities. Most of our construction volunteers are men, but we do see our fair share of women on Habitat job sites. Many of our Habitat Homebuyers are women, and many are single women raising children on their own.

Homeownership empowers women here in West Virginia and around the world. Owning an affordable home can remove barriers to opportunity and success and lead to improved health, stronger childhood development, and financial stability.

This International Women’s Day, take some time out to recognize the women in your life that are working hard to better the world around them.
