Thank you Women Build team! You are awesome weather warriors. Not even the snow could stop our Women Builders working on our Penn Villa Townhomes in Sellersville. They were determined to help us keep this build on schedule.

What is Women Build?

  • Women building safe and affordable homes
  • Learning construction and home repair skills
  • Women supporting and building up other women
  • Friendships with a common interest
