Professional Women in Building Council Enhances Life for 10-year-old HBF Client

According to a report issued by Construction Coverage in early 2022, females hold just 11.8% of all construction jobs in the Denver area. However, the Home Builders Association of Metro Denver’s Professional Women in Building Council (PWB) is the second-largest council of its type in the country with 163 members.  They also have a strong commitment to community service and, over the years, many of their members have volunteered on projects for Home Builders Foundation (HBF), HBA's Charity of Choice.

Last year, PWB decided to host an all-female construction project. After learning from HBF about the need for a bathroom modification for 10-year-old Ethan H., who has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and uses an electric wheelchair for mobility, PWB decided it was the perfect fit. Erin Hurley, 2022 PWB Board Chair, says the project resonated with many of the members. “The pandemic reinforced the need for the home to be a refuge,” Hurley reflected. “We wanted to showcase our skills and talents by modifying this house to not only increase Ethan’s independence but also to make it safer and more comfortable for both him and his family.”  Read more and see video
