​​​​Community Renovation Empowering Women, CREW

Welcome to CREW

Mission and Goals

Based in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Community Renovation empowering Women (CREW) is a non-profit service organization whose mission is “to build community and improve the status of women and children through building and renovating structures for agencies that primarily serve women and children.”  ​We accomplish this mission by teaching our mostly female volunteers construction skills that build confidence, afford them independence, and provide them opportunities to engage communities through service. 

​CREW is a community of volunteers who anchor their values in a spirit of cooperation and a commitment to building community through positive change, while empowering women.  By way of the projects, the organization offers volunteers the opportunity to contribute to the larger community while practicing their new skills.  

CREW’s three primary goals reflect its philosophy.  They are: 1)  Build and /or renovate structures for agencies that serve women and children, 2) Build community; and 3) Bring  attention to issues that affect women and children, primarily violence, poverty, and health care.


CREW is a 501(c)(3) non-profit service organization and your donations are tax deductible. 100% of all donations go to materials, supplies, and  CREW’s truck insurance.
