Albany--  Flint River Habitat For Humanity is looking for a few good women to help build affordable housing for South Georgia families.

As part of National Women Build Week, Habitat wants women volunteers to come and pick up nails, hammers and even drills to help build nice, adequate homes.

The week also honors women's role in overcoming poverty housing. Habitat leaders say construction isn't just a man's profession.

"It's just another form of reaching out, making sure we touch all people. You'd be surprised how many women actually have the skills and have the heart and dedication and commitment to see the community develop and empower people and families," said Flint River Habitat Development Director David Wilson.

The build isn't just for women. All volunteers are welcome. This year's build will take place in the Willow Oaks subdivision. The kickoff is May 5th at 8 a.m. with our own Ruthie Garner. For more information on how you can help, call Flint River Habitat at 229-446-8199 extension 14.
