Women Build Hope with Habitat for Humanity Tucson
Thanks to the amazing efforts of women and Habitat for Humanity Tucson, a single mother will soon become the owner of a safe, affordable and healthy home. “Home means a solid foundation for our family,” says Yvonne, the soon-to-be owner of Habitat Tucson’s Women Build house. Habitat Tucson welcomes volunteers of all skill levels to join Yvonne’s family on May 13, when Yvonne will receive the keys to her new home. Volunteers will join together to help build another energy efficient Habitat home.
Yvonne will purchase the 16th Women Build home—a home constructed by Habitat’s all-women construction crew—after completing the requirements of Habitat’s homeownership program. The program, which included nine months of classes, teaches homebuyers how to be successful in their new homes and includes lessons on budgeting, home maintenance and sustainable, healthy living.
Yvonne is grateful for the efforts and support of women builders who are building her home where her children can grow in a safe and healthy environment. She knows that her home will allow them to do well in school and become active members of the community.
