Women Build Celebration

Sep 14 Thu 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm


DC Habitat’s first Women Build celebration marks the success of this year’s Women Build campaign and recognizes the people who contributed to that success, including an Honorary Committee of our country’s First Ladies, the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, women entrepreneurs, donors, volunteers, and Habitat homeowners.

Our Women Build Reception will feature keynote remarks by the Honorable Benjamin S. Carson, Sr. M.D., Secretary of Housing and Urban Development. Recommended dress for this event is business attire and valet parking is available.

Women Build is a nationwide initiative of Habitat for Humanity. This year, DC Habitat will raise funds, advocate, and raise awareness for low- and moderate-income women in need of housing through a major Women Build campaign in the nation’s capital. Women in the nation’s capital who struggle to support their families, especially women who serve as the head of their household, often face obstacles that make escaping poverty seem impossible. Through Women Build, DC Habitat is raising awareness of the challenges that women in poverty face and raising funds to help families in need of safe, decent housing realize the dream of home ownership, strengthening families and communities for generations. By partnering with local families, we provide a hand up, not a handout that empowers our families to build strong, stable, and bright futures for their children. As we approach the completion of our 200th home, we’re more committed than ever to transforming the lives of even more local families with your support!
