Looking forward to being a part of another great "virtual" event that is coming up! You may have heard of Habitat for Humanity. They bring people together to build safe homes and housing for the most vulnerable in our community. They typically host a great event called Strong Women Keep Building, and this year, the event goes virtual!
Leah Miller (Habitat for Humanity of Greater Sacramento’s first female CEO" told me that “In California, nearly 1 in 3 single mothers live below the poverty level. These are the same women and children who have been hit hardest by the impacts of COVID-19. Having the opportunity to own an affordable home not only provides strength, stability, and self-reliance to a low-income family – but provides the opportunity to build wealth and equity which is the quickest way to sustainably get out of poverty.”
“Keep Building – a Virtual Women Build event” takes place Wednesday, September 2nd from 5:30-6:30pm and will include powerful stories of women building each other up, success stories of single Mother Habitat homeowners, entertainment, and words from powerful women leaders across the Sacramento region. All funds will go directly to support upcoming Habitat construction projects for single mothers and low-income families in desperate need of affordable housing.
Powered by SMUD, this year’s Women Build is made possible by a number of local community partners, women-owned businesses, and hundreds of women coming together to be a part of the solution in providing safe, decent, and affordable housing for those in need.
