"It's really empowering.  Women don't just have to volunteer in the kitchen (but they can if they want). We can do all the same stuff the men can: hammer, drill, lift, build, carry, cut, saw and more! It's great to see women who have the courage to try anything."

-Jeri-Lynn, Build and Salvage Crew Volunteer Team Leader

We're are shaking things up this year, and hosting "Women in Leadership Week" from June 18 - June 22 thanks to generous sponsor, Manulife. Come for a day or the whole week, and feel energized and gain confidence as you play a role in helping local families achieve homeownership. This isn’t about excluding men, but including women. You don’t need to have any building skills, but you won’t believe how quickly you will learn them.

AND this year, we have added a new element! At 3:00pm, after you have had a fulfilling day volunteering, we will be hosting leadership seminars that will be led by reputable and knowledgeable female leaders in our community. The seminar topics are as follows:

Monday June 18: Women in Non-Profit Arena: Karen Redman, CEO - Habitat for Humanity Waterloo Region

Wednesday June 20: Women in STEAM: Adele Newton, Manager Special Projects - Institute for Quantum Computing, & Partner - Launch Waterloo

Thursday June 21: Women's Health: Susan Dusick, President - St. Mary's Hospital Foundation

Friday June 22: Entrepreneurship: Jane W. Klugman, President - Whitney & Company Realty

Be empowered while helping local families achieve stability through homeownership. Everyone is welcome, so bring your sister, mother or girlfriends.

Together we can build strength, stability and self-reliance.
