Southern Crescent Habitat Challenges Women To Join The 2016 “Women Build” in Georgia

By  |  0 Comments

Women possess all that is needed to create a dramatic change in our community. By this, Southern Crescent Habitat For Humanity (SCHFH) is gearing up for the 2016 “Women Build,” an annual project that empowers women to build homes and enable them to positively impact the lives of families by making home ownership a reality. Their motto is “Girls play house, women build them.” SCHFH challenges all-women volunteer teams to come together to actively work to build a home for LaTonya Flugence and her family. Each volunteer is asked for a contribution to help fund the builds supplies and materials. Volunteer dates will take place on April 2nd, 5th, 7th and 9th at 2338 Glebe Court, Lovejoy, Georgia 30228.

Southern Crescent Habitat’s “Women Build”  is a safe haven for women to practice and excel, no matter what their skill levels. The program nurtures, recruits and train women to build and maintain simple, decent, healthy and affordable homes in their community. This year’s build is dedicated to LaTonya Flugence. Ms. Flugence is a working mother of two sons, Kavious, 20 years of age and Kyle, 17 years of age. She has volunteered at her local Habitat Restore and has successfully completed her sweat equity and is ready to move into her new home.

“I am thankful for Southern Crescent Habitat For Humanity and to the woman who are coming together to help build, support, and donate their time to invest in me,” says Flugence.

SCHFH believes that everyone deserves a decent place to live. The affiliate has created opportunities for hard-working people to own an attractive and affordable home. To qualify they must have a stable job with a 2-year tenure, spend more than 1/3 of their monthly income on rental housing, meet income requirements and invest 300 hours in sweat equity (building homes) and home ownership (financial and home maintenance) education. Our organization has helped over 300 families in South Atlanta, and would like to invite you to be apart of our mission to double that by 2020.

The Women Build volunteer dates are April 2nd, 5th, 7th and 9th and can accommodate 40 volunteers per day. THey are only able to hold volunteer dates with volunteer donation or sponsorship commitment.
