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.

“It's amazing to see so many women really putting their hands and their hearts into a cause that is so dear to me,” said Cindy Lankford, Women Build honorary chairman for 2013. “As a mother of two daughters myself, it is truly moving to see Habitat volunteers making a difference by helping provide homes for other mothers and families in the central Oklahoma community.”
