Haughtiness goes before destruction; humility precedes honor.
Proverbs 18:12 (NLT)
JQ99.3, Habitat For Humanity of Kent County, DeGraaf Interiors, Vredevoogd-Brummel Insurance, and City 2 Shore Real Estate invite ALL JQ99.3 Women to be part of our upcoming Women Build!
First lets cover the broader details of this invitation!
What is a Women Build?
A Women Build is a Habitat for Humanity International program, whose mission is to recruit, educate, and nuture women to build - and advocate for - simply, decent, and affordable houses in their communities.
Why a Women Build?
A Women Build challenges women to actively address the problem of substandard housing and to be part of the solution. The program empowers women by encouraging them to take the lead in construction, teaching them new skills, and allowing them to help other women become homeowners.
Does a Women Build exclude men?
A Women Build does not exclude anyone. It's about including women and opening doors of opportunity.
What is Habitat for Humanity of Kent County's next Women Build project?
A new house will be built at 1046 Rathbone SW in Wyoming. The two-story house will be 1,362 square feet and include 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The homebuyer is a single mother with four children. Construction will begin in early October and end in early March. The house will be framed in time for winter. The house will be built next door to a Habitat house being rehabbed at the same time. It will be fun for volunteers to watch the progress of both houses and know that two Habitat families will live next door to each other!
Next lets cover the finer details!
JQ99.3's goal is to sign up 10-15 listeners for each of the build dates. Those dates are:
