HabiTea raises approximately $28,000 for the Women Build
This was the first year for the 2016 Women Build HabiTea 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. If you are interested in being part of the hands-on build of Kayla’s home please contact Gail Knight Williams at the Habitat office at 812-423-5623 or email her at email@example.com.
Again, thank you for your participation in the 2016 Women Build HabiTea! If you enjoyed this year’s event please watch for the “Save the Date” for August of 2017.
National Women Build Week was a success!
On Wednesday, May 4, female volunteers hung siding on the home of Doris Douglas for our National Women Build Week Celebration Day! Even though the day was cut short, the all-women crew, alongside our Core Crew, did a great job!

Throughout May we also hosted training workshops at Lowe's for Women! Click here to view photos.
We'd like to thank Lowe's, the corporate sponsor and underwriter of National Women Build Week.
For more information on all Women Build events, email Gail Knight Williams, director of development or call 812-423-5623 ext. 31.
