Save-the-Date for HabiTea | August 24, 2017

We celebrated the first Women Build HabiTea in 2016 and because of your participation it was a huge success! We raised approximately $28,000 toward building a home for Kayla White and her two sons ages twelve and fifteen. Kayla has overcome many obstacles in her life but she does not give up. She says she never dreamed she would become a homeowner. Because of your support and others like you, Kayla’s life has been changed dramatically. Kayla now has the strength, stability, and self-reliance through shelter she needs to become successful.

More information about the 2017 HabiTea will be coming soon! For questions or to get involved, contact Gail Knight Williams at gkwilliams@evansvillehabitat.org.

 

Help RAI$E the ROOF! 

Donate Now to help us reach our fundraising goal of $80,000! Everyone can help build a home for a family in need of decent, affordable housing. Donate today to help the Women Build sponsor a home for a future homeowner to build and purchase. 

Here are just a few examples of how your gift will be used:

-$100 funds five interior doors 

- $300 is the cost of the landscaping and shrubbery

-$750 would pay for the yard barn.

-$3000 buys the total cost of the windows

-$4000 covers all the concrete for the foundation and walkway

Please know that you will be supporting a cause that helps families build financial equity and provides stability for a lifetime. My favorite saying is: ”We are not given MORE to have more---WE are given MORE to help others." - Vicki Brasel, chair of 2016 Women Build
