Women Raise the Roof needs volunteers for new home build in Nelsonville, Ohio

Women Raise the Roof needs volunteers for a new home build in process in Nelsonville, Ohio.

WRTF is an Athens County (Ohio) Habitat for Humanity (http://www.athenshabitat.org/) campaign which provides an environment where women can comfortably learn building skills they might not otherwise have the opportunity to acquire. Habitat for Humanity is a worldwide, nonprofit organization whose goal is to eliminate substandard housing throughout the world. The object of Athens women learning construction skills is to build a house for a family in need. We have built three houses to date in Glouster and Nelsonville.
