HFHSTW Women Build


Women Build is an annual project in which Habitat for Humanity St. Tammany West empowers women, without excluding men, to build homes, enabling them to positively impact the lives of families by making home ownership a reality. Last year in western St. Tammany, over 400 volunteers contributed 3,000 volunteer hours during October to help build two homes in Covington.

Women possess all that's needed to create dramatic change in our community. From volunteering to donating, there are many ways to contribute to the success of this program:

W.A.T.C.H. is a group of dedicated ladies who ensure Women Build continues to thrive in western St. Tammany. It began in 2009 when a group of women accepted the challenge by pledging $1,000 a year. In recognition and appreciation of their support, members wear a hand-crafted glass lapel pin created by Carol Lapari designs. In 2016, W.A.T.C.H. women donated $38,000 toward building safe, affordable housing. Download the 2017 W.A.T.C.H. sign up form here.
