Habitat for Humanity in Calhoun County is looking for a few good women - about 50, in fact - to participate in a program to hone their home remodeling skills. "Women Build"  is a nationwide Habitat program carried out in local jurisdictions where a Habitat home is remodeled, largely by women who are interested in learning how to rehab a home.

Beverly Kelley, Habitat for Humanity executive director, tells 95.3 WBCK the local Habitat will receive $5000 once the work at 52 West Kingman Avenue in Battle Creek is completed and passes muster.
