2018 Women Build

Habitat for Humanity’s National Women Build Week   is an annual week-long event created by Habitat’s Women Build program in partnership with Lowe’s.

The program invites women to devote at least one

day to help families build strength, stability, and independence through housing. The week is meant    to spotlight the homeownership challenges

faced by women.

Figueroa Family

The Women Build Partner Family is the Figueroa Family. Susana Figueroa is a single parent with 5 children, Natalie, David, Dalia, Yanise and Kamyla. The family currently lives in a 2 bedroom apartment. They make do with the small space by moving around to various parts of the apartment at night so they can sleep. Susana works at JBS and left briefly to work at Otterbox as a temporary employee hoping to obtain a permanent status. But since the permanent status did not look like it would happen she returned to JBS for a more reliable term of employment. Her sacrifices to obtain a Habitat home are not lost on her children as they all help out to make her life a little easier as the older children help take care and watch their younger siblings.

 

For Susana owning a Habitat home means stability. Her children will finally be part of a community, they can have their own space and her dream of owning a home will come true.

 

For Susana Habitat is her only hope to be a homeowner.

Your donations help us build more homes for local families in desperate need of affordable housing!

 

We ask each Women Build participant to please donate or fundraise $100 per person, or $1,000 for a team of 10, to help us reach our goal of fully funding the Women Build home!
