WOMEN BUILD 2017

Habitat for Humanity’s 10th Annual National Women Build Week

Held May 6-14, invites women to devote at least one day to help build decent and affordable housing in their local communities.
  • Habitat’s National Women Build Week is a nationwide initiative of its Women Build program developed in partnership with Lowe’s.
  • Women have the capability and determination necessary to build Habitat for Humanity houses, addressing the problem of substandard housing in a concrete way so that families have safe, decent and affordable homes.
  • Lowe’s helped launch National Women Build Week in 2008, and each year provides the support of Lowe’s Heroes and conducts how-to clinics at stores throughout the year to teach volunteers construction skills so they can feel equipped and take part in the builds.
  • Lowe’s donated nearly $2 million to support Habitat’s 2017 National Women Build, which will take place in 300 communities nationwide.
  • More than 17,000 women, including Lowe’s Heroes volunteers from across the country, are expected to volunteer at construction sites as part of Habitat’s 2017 National Women Build Week.
  • This year, National Women Build Week will reach the milestone of having engaged 100,000 women from all 50 states since 2008.
  • Women volunteers boost Habitat’s capacity to build more houses and serve more families. More than 2,500 Women Build houses have been built by all-women construction crews since the program began in 1998.
  • Habitat for Humanity’s Women Build program recruits, educates and inspires women to build, and advocate for decent and affordable houses in their communities.

VIP Guest Speaker

Councilman Kiki Miller

Kiki Miller has lived in Coeur d’Alene since 1975 and has been involved in numerous civic and leadership projects over the past several decades.

“Our community has evolved in recent years and I respect the interests of both longtime residents who have lived here all their life, as well as the newcomers to our community who are passionate about our North Idaho quality of life.”

“I’m running for city council because I believe one person can make a difference.  I’ve spent the last 30 years being involved in multiple aspects of community service, promoting our region, and civic projects that have helped to create our great city,” said Miller. “We have challenges in the near future, but we can have positive outcomes if we involve the creative vision of the entire community.”

Miller’s vision for the city includes a quality education system, a diverse offering of sustainable jobs, responsible planning, and strong fiscal management in order to grow the local economy, while protecting the natural resources and quality of life that we all enjoy. “My experience as a local entrepreneur, community activist, and civic leader has provided a great perspective to our community,” said Miller. “I want to provide a voice for area residents, while shaping a positive future for our community.”

Miller and her husband have one son who attends Lake City High School. She has owned Kagey Company, Inc., a local marketing, publication, and promotions firm, since 1992. Miller has served as a Coeur d’Alene Chamber of Commerce Executive Director, as a Women’s Center Board Member, and has been named Volunteer of the Year for both the Coeur d’Alene and Post Falls Chambers. She also received Woman of the Year honors from the local Soroptimist organization and has volunteered or been appointed to several leadership roles for numerous organizations and nonprofits.
