Mission

Women Under Construction Network (powered by At Home Foundation Inc.) is a 501c3, non-profit organization created to support women and their children from underserved communities. Our organization provides home repair tools, teaches practical application and introduces home repair basics to women while teaching self-sufficiency and building self-esteem. Since 2014, we’ve pioneered several unique initiatives for women and their children who are in transition or in need at home, and we use home repair tools and their corresponding life parallels to teach, administer our services and provide for our women. We are Repairing Homes, Building Women, Changing Lives!

WUCN Power Tool Socials

WUCN’s “Power Tool Socials” Series is our flagship program and brings women of all ages, nationalities and socio-economic backgrounds together to enjoy a constellation of information, networking, and fun. The Power Tool Socials Educate, Motivate, Inspire and Empower women to repair their homes, build their families, their careers and most importantly themselves. They provide a respite, a place to be revived and refreshed, and a place to rebuild the positive elements of damaged lives. From its inception in 2014, the number of women served has steadily improved, tripling at its height of increase.

Population(s) Served
Women

The 12 week long WILAH project is a dual phase project created for single moms. In the first phase of the program, certified volunteer instructors introduce selected women to the correct use of household tools (i.e. hammers, saws, power drills, etc.), they may learn any of the following: sheetrock repair, plumbing/electrical, doors/windows, flooring. Instructors provide the opportunity to apply the learned skills in a simulated at home repair setting.

In each session, students receive a new tool for their toolbox. Students learn self-advocacy as they perform preservative repairs that increase savings and property value, reduce foreclosure risk, eliminate blight and increase their quality of life.

In the second phase of the program, instructors, motivational speakers and counselors challenge and inspire the women, teaching positive principles by aligning their tools with life parallels. The project adopts a unique small group approach to solidify individualized attention.
