Bend-Redmond Habitat for Humanity to host Women’s Build Week in Redmond –

REDMOND, Ore. (KTVZ) — Bend-Redmond Habitat for Humanity is excited to host Women’s Build Week May 13-18th in Redmond.

Women’s Build is a week-long volunteer project open to anyone who wants to learn new skills and help build Habitat homes. This event brings the community together to make a difference while providing much-needed opportunities for affordable homeownership.

Bend-Redmond Habitat anticipates more than 100 individuals volunteering during the week. Volunteers do not need any experience. Habitat staff and volunteers will provide training on aspects of the home building process. Types of construction for the build week could include interior trim, setting window and door frames, flooring, and exterior siding. Construction will take place on five homes in the net-zero Cedar Townhomes project in NW Redmond.

“Women’s Build Week isn’t just about building houses. It’s about breaking stereotypes and making a real difference. We’re all about empowering women in construction, and we’re also all about inclusivity. So, whether you’re a pro with a hammer or picking one up for the first time, come join us. Together, we’re not just building homes, we’re building community,” said Habitat CEO Carly Colgan.

Morning and afternoon shifts are available for individuals or teams during the week. The cost is $100/volunteer/shift. Lunch, a T-shirt, and swag bag will be provided. The week will culminate with a celebration at General Duffy’s Waterhole on Saturday, May 18th with complimentary food and drinks for participants. To sign up or learn more, visit
