About This Campaign
Women Build is a national Habitat for Humanity program designed to provide a comfortable learning environment for women to discover they can build Habitat for Humanity homes!
This year’s Women Build will unite 360 women across Boone County. Each volunteer builder will raise a minimum of $250 contributing to our overall goal of $90,000. Every team of 10 builders will spend one day on the build site completing the home in just 30 days!
The funds raised during Women Build sponsor the land, infrastructure and materials needed for the home, as well as required homeowner education training. With your support we can continue to fulfill our mission of helping hard working, low income families here in Boone County. Thank you!
It is our pleasure to announce that Julie Ponticello will be our homeowner for Women Build 2017.
Here is a quick message from Julie:
I am a single mother and the sole provider for my 16-year-old son, whom I also homeschool. My two older daughters are married but visit us whenever they are able. I moved to the Midwest and specifically Boone County from Massachusetts about 20 years ago. My landlord has given notice of his intent to sell the house we are living in and the house we have occupied for the past 8 years. So, we are very excited about the opportunity to own a Habitat house, to have a home that we can call our own, a home where we can enjoy being a family together. It represents a new beginning for us, and we are very grateful to the Women Build and all those that will be working on our house and helping to turn something that I never thought possible into a reality for us.
