Building each other up: Washington County participates in ‘Women Build’ project

More than 60 area women came together for the Chipola Area Habitat for Humanity “Women Build” project Friday, May 7.

The event serves as part of a national initiative that empowers women to help families build strength, stability, and independence, this program spotlights the homeownership challenges faced by women and addresses its issues by bringing women together and igniting our collective power. 

“Women Build is a haven for women to learn, practice and excel, no matter what their skill levels,” said Chipola Area Habitat for Humanity Executive Director Carmen Smith.

“Women Build provides an opportunity for women, who are often the backbone that supports strong communities, to unite and leverage their influence, expertise, advocacy, and social networking.”

This yearÂ’s project was focused on homes at the Chipola Street Development in Marianna.
