Women Build Event kicks off in Washington County

News

The Washington County Habitat for Humanity kicked off its 28th Annual Women Build Event. 

The first of two groundbreaking ceremonies was held for Habitat for Humanity’s Women Build.

Over 90 percent of Habitat homes in Washington County are owned by single mothers, which is the population most likely to be affected by poor living conditions. 

Monday’s event gave women the opportunity to serve other women in their community.  

“We think its an honor to be able to celebrate women across Washington County, as well as across Arkansas and across the nation with Women Build to show that we are here to empower women to build homes, community and hope,” said Amanda Brumbelow, Women Build project lead for Habitat for Humanity Washington County.

The first build is organized by the real estate community, and the second is organized by the community of women within Washington County. 

Habitat for Humanity of Washington County has provided 55 homes for low income working families.
