Habitat for Humanity of Lincoln (lincolnhabitat.org) will be hosting Women Build Workshops at Nebraska Innovation Studios throughout the month of April. With support from the Home Builders Association of Lincoln, attendees will be able to learn how to use power tools to assemble and create a different furniture project each class. Mead Lumber is providing the materials for each class which will be led by local furniture builder, Lenora Allen from SheBuilds.

All four classes quickly sold out, with the proceeds going to benefit Habitat’s Women Build campaign, a fundraising and volunteering campaign in May that will help build a townhouse for two families in need of safe, affordable housing in Lincoln.

Women are especially impacted by the issue of affordable housing. Finding a safe, affordable home to raise their family is one of the biggest challenges many Lincoln women face. The Habitat for Humanity of Lincoln Women Build campaign harnesses the power of women helping women.

Habitat Lincoln has partnered with more than 197 local families, serving more than 840 men, women, and children through the construction of new single-family homes, as well as simple and critical repair projects. They look forward to continuing the mission to bring people together to build homes, communities, and hope.
