|Subject:||Resolution - Habitat For Humanity National Women Build Week May 6 - 14|
In the near future I intend to introduce a resolution recognizing Habitat for Humanity’s National Women Build Week.
Celebrated May 6 through 14 this year, this is a week-long event created by Habitat's Women Build program.
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.
This week-long celebration is held during the time leading up to Mother’s Day. More than 98,000 women from all 50 states volunteered at the nine previous annual National Women Build Week events.
In addition to the financial and volunteer support, local Habitat organizations offer how-to clinics to help prepare volunteers for the build site.
Habitat for Humanity of the Lehigh Valley's mission is to help families break the cycle of poverty and build long-term financial security by helping families in need with a hand up.
The Women Build program, made possible with the support and sponsorship of Lowe's, does not exclude men, but rather includes women in the construction process, offering an empowering, unique, fun and positive environment for women to give back in their communities.
I invite you to join me as a co-sponsor of this resolution recognizing the week of May 6 through 14, 2017, as Habitat for Humanity’s National Women Build Week.
