Women Build 2017

Women Build 2017 | Habitat for Humanity KokomoWomen Build is Habitat for Humanity’s program for women who want to learn construction skills and build homes and communities. This program brings together women (and men) from all walks of life to address the housing crisis facing millions of women and children worldwide.

In Kokomo, we are building a house in Cedar Crest in partnership with Theresa Everett, a single mother of two sons. The lot was generously donated by Dennis Sweeney, whose house was destroyed in the tornado in 2016.

Please sign up to volunteer on the available dates using the link below. The tasks listed for each day may, from time to time, need to be revised due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances. Once these tasks are complete, Theresa and the boys will be moving into the house.

Rehab Project

As soon as the Women Build Project (see above) is complete, work will continue on a house located at 1208 Cadillac Drive West in Cedar Crest subdivision.  The previous owner passed away in Spring 2017 and his children donated the house to Habitat Kokomo.  After some painting, remodeling of the bathrooms and a few other things, the house will be home to Habitat Partner Family James & Heather DeWitt and their two sons.
