"women build" has been going on since 1991 and the goal is to learn new skills while helping others in the community. shannon traux (true-ax) says that the power of women is something special... shannon truax women build committee chairman>> it's amazingly powerful when you get a group of women together to learn new skills to do something to support each other and to help a family. there's a lot of power there, it empowers not just they people your are helping, but the women who are building, to get out here and realize that they can swing a hammer or run a saw just like the guys and build a house. they predict that the garfield green development project will be done around late summer but with habitat for humanity relying on volunteers that could change.
