Women from across central Oklahoma are showing that home really is where the heart is by participating in Central Oklahoma Habitat for Humanity's Women Build event.

Female volunteer groups are banding together to contribute their time and their hands as part of National Women Build Week, a national event scheduled around Mother's Day that challenges women from all walks of life to help eliminate poverty housing.
