Fourteen teams of ten individuals join together to:

  • Raise funds to build a Habitat home.
  • Physically construct the home.
  • Build awareness throughout the community about the importance of building strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter.
  • Bring new women and groups together to advocate for more decent, affordable homes for families in our community.
  • Earn one-of-a-kind incentives, like purple hard hats and blue hammers.
  • Have fun while making a difference!
