Women wanted to help build affordable housing

Women Constructing Hope Home Goes Vertical

Women Constructing Hope 197Over 60 strong, women ranging in age from their late teens into their seventies, measured, cut, nailed and hoisted the first floor walls on the Women Constructing Hope home this past weekend.

Women Constructing Hope 156The home, located in Old North Village in Kingston will be built primarily by a crew of women volunteers.

Lt. Gov. Elizabeth Roberts and former president and general manager of WJAR-TV  Lisa Churchville, honorary co-chairs of the event, were on hand Saturday  to  help with our Women Constructing Hope weekend build on October 19 and 20.

Women Constructing Hope 019The next build weekend is November 2 and 3. We are still recruiting women for November 3. No construction experience is necessary, just a willingness to learn and to help a family in need. 

This will be a great opportunity to meet some great women who want to give back to their community. We will have team leaders who will provide training and support to women who have no construction experience.
