The Sussex County Habitat for Humanity recently celebrated the completion of this year’s Women Build House.

The occasion was marked with a celebratory event that included the future homeowners, Women Build volunteers, Habitat volunteers and staff. Habitat’s Women Build project seeks to empower women to build stability and self-reliance through shelter.

The Sussex County Habitat for Humanity Women Build Team has completed 86 activities since August 2019 including how-to-build clinics, fundraisers and volunteer work days.

Even during a pandemic, the team of women managed to donate 2,229 volunteer hours while maintaining socially distant and health safety practices. Working in small groups, including with volunteers, the team managed to complete a home for a family in time for the holidays.
