About National Women Build Week
During the weeklong event, women devote at least one day to the effort to eliminate poverty housing.
The event is typically held the week leading up to Mother’s Day
These dates are significant to many volunteers, as families with children make up a staggering number of those in need of adequate housing.
This year's event was held May 4-12, 2013
