National Women Build Week- Volunteers Needed and Women Build Construction Clinics

We need your help, please volunteer:

Volunteers are invited to help address the need for affordable housing throughout the community during Habitat for Humanity’s eighth annual National Women Build Week. Habitat for Humanity of Coastal Fairfield County (Habitat CFC) is one of more than 300 Habitat affiliates nationwide hosting Women Build projects with support from Lowe’s, Habitat’s longtime partner in the event.

On May 6 and May 8, local volunteers will help build a home for a hard-working single mother of 2 here in Bridgeport. Lowe’s and Habitat invite men and women in the area to help make the dream of homeownership a reality for a family in Bridgeport – no construction skills are necessary.

To volunteer or donate to this project, call Stefany Raulukaitis at (203) 333-2642 ext. 117 or email For more information on National Women Build Week, visit
