Women Build Homes in Longview

Posted: Updated:

LONGVIEW (KYTX) - Longview Habitat for Humanity's Women Build program is about to finish it's 11th home in 13 years.

A group of 35-40 have met the past 4 Saturdays to help build this 2 bedroom home.
85 percent of the house is built by women, for a woman.
Crew Leader Elizabeth Smith says it is about helping your neighbor.

"A lot of us are moms, parents, and all of us have been single and have struggled and it's just a way to improve something. It's what being a woman is all about,  to help empower others." - Elizabeth Smith

The women meet Saturday mornings to build and some Wednesdays.
