CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va (WVIR) -

All this week, about 20 women in Charlottesville have been rolling up their sleeves to make a difference for a family in their community. Women Build is part of Habitat for Humanity.

The group partnered with a team from Lowes and the Charlottesville Junior League to tackle the project of completing construction on three new houses from the ground up.

The Women Build director, Kathy Ball says the program gives women valuable skills and a sense of accomplishment.

"Many of the women in Woman Build do have great skills and they'll go out and they'll put in tile or floor or build part of their home, or their whole home. So it's great in terms of empowering." stated Ball.

This is the tenth construction project the Women Build group has taken on. This year, Lowes offered a $5,000 grant to help provide the women with supplies.
