Habitat for Humanity’s National Women Build Week is taking place this week in Rochester.
The annual week-long event has been around for 10 years, and more than 25 women came out to help build a house in the city on Thursday.
The event is meant to empower women to advocate for affordable housing and highlights the challenges many homeowners face on a day-to-day basis.
“We’re here to support the kids and the families and to give people a safe place, a happy place to live and to grow and to build their families, and we’re here for our community,” said Dulcy LeCour.
A house on Orchard Street was the same house News 8 framed last June. The house will be raised next Saturday.
