A while back CREW was asked to build one legged stools for Amy Biehl High School. The stool had been designed by faculty at the high school. They are used by students who have a hard time concentrating in class. Sitting on the stools requires a physical concentration allowing for students to “pay attention” in class. May Lee, a CREW member, who helped build the one legged stools and works at Pine Hill, was inspired by the project. She asked for a sample stool that they could duplicate for the children in the elementary school. Kathy Daily supplied the stool. May took the stool out to Pine Hill, they adapted the design and made changes according to the needs and flooring at the school. Below are pictures and comments of the students. CREW is pleased to be able to pass on what we have learned and inspired that others can modify to meet their needs.

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.
