About Bob: Bob served in the U.S. Navy followed by a long career in the lumber and timber industries. A medical condition cost him partial use of his hands, and led to the loss of his job and almost everything he’d worked for over the years. Bob’s dream is to have a permanent home that is safe and affordable, and where friends and grandchildren can comfortably visit. He wants to become a homeowner because, he says, “it’s the American dream. It gives a person a sense of pride, dignity, and freedom.”
Women build engages volunteers and partners to address challenges faced by women and children—lack of opportunity,training, and education are three examples—close to home and around the world. In the United States, Women Build promotes the involvement of women in the construction of Habitat houses. Women Build projects provide an opportunity for women to learn construction skills in a supportive environment, empowering them as they address the problem of substandard housing.
In 2019, Habitat for Humanity of Central Lane is calling on women to take on the challenge of building and raising funds for a home in our community for a single mother and her son.
