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.
We start potential projects by visiting your site to discuss how well the services we can provide match your project needs. We can then make recommendations, establish priorities, and work collaboratively with you on a plan.
What We Can Do
The following list is representative of the type of work we’ve done or can do:
Our Current Projects: Santuario de Karuna
On Sat. May 20th. We began building a deck. See below for more information on the agency. We have never built a deck before so it will be a great learning opportunity. We have had plans drawn up including all materials. Go to Current Project for pictures and details.
Next Work Days are:
Saturday, September 23, 2017 and
Sunday September 24, 2017
We will be mixing and pouring cement, setting the plates and posts. They are providing a vegan lunch. Work begins at 8:30 in the morning and leave around 2:30.
Building Bookcases: in coordination with Habitat for Humanity, we will be working with children to teach and assist them in building there own bookcase. We are coming up with prototypes and blueprints. We will supply the blueprints and fasteners and you supply the materials for your bookcase. We will build prototypes for the children and you to choose your design, materials, colors, etc. This is going to be a really fun project. Start date TBA
