2018 Women Build Volunteer

About This Campaign

The 10th Women Build brings women together to raise funds and build a home with a local resident in need of adequate housing. This program serves to highlight and honor the many hard-working and talented women in our community. Construction on the Women Build home is open to everyone, regardless of gender, but does allow women to find an inviting environment in which they can participate in the building process.

Iowa Valley Habitat for Humanity

Campaign to Support Iowa Valley Habitat for Humanity

We envision a world in which each person has a decent place to live. Locally, we partner with both current and future homeowners, local businesses, residents and social service organizations to construct and renovate safe, decent, affordable housing in Cedar, Iowa, Johnson and Washington Counties.  We also secure affordable financing so that homeowners in our program save thousands of dollars over the life of their mortgage.   Globally, we work to remove barriers to decent housing by supporting Global Village trips and tithing to Habitat for Humanity global builds.  Together with our community, Habitat homeowners gain the strength, stability and self-reliance needed to build better lives and stronger communities.

Meet Katie Lammers
Katie Lammers has been selected as the honoree for Iowa Valley Habitat for Humanity’s 10th 
Women Build home. She fits right into the Habitat family as she has been in the remodeling business 
for 35 years. Katie and her husband, Dan, own Lammers Construction Services which has the largest 
staff of woman carpenters of any remodeling company in Iowa City. Katie has volunteered her time 
as well as her staff’s time on the construction of Habitat homes for 15 years. Katie also works with 
Kirkwood’s Carpentry program to host interns who have the chance to learn skills while working 
alongside her expert staff.
Equally as important as Katie Lammers’ long-term service to Iowa Valley Habitat for Humanity and 
her construction experience is her dedication and commitment to giving back to the community and 
supporting organizations that provide assistance to under-served populations. Katie stays active in 
volunteering her time with Iowa City’s Mayor’s Youth Empowerment Program (MYEP). She has served 
on the MYEP board as well as the board president. Each summer, Katie plans and coordinates a 
Summer Tennis Camp with the organization. The program allows MYEP to give tennis lessons to 
people with special needs. 
The Katie Lammers Women Build will kick off in earnest during National Women Build Week in early 
May with a construction event gathering volunteers to build the walls of the Women Build home. On 
May 5, Katie and the Women Build committee will host the annual Christine Grant 5K Run/Walk 
to work toward their $50,000 fundraising goal. The bulk of constructing the Katie Lammers Women 
Build home will occur between August and November. Hammers and Hardhats, an annual 
auction fundraiser, takes place on October 4 at the Coralville Marriott.
