STRUTHERS, Ohio (WKBN) – Progress is being made on the Struthers homes being built by Habitat for Humanity on Ridge Way Street.

Women helped do some of the work on the home on Saturday. It is a part of Women Build. Women from the Islamic Society of Youngstown were learning some construction skills.

The idea is to get the women out of their comfort zone.

“Learning how to hang drywall, learning how to hang siding, proper way to paint. You know, it’s all important,” said construction manager Michael Ondrey.

The home is still on track to be finished by August.
