"Women build is so important because it is women helping women achieve the dream we all want.”
Homes by Avi stepped forward to help Habitat for Humanity build homes for local families
Throughout May, we sent 11 Homes by Avi women under the group name HBA helps Habitat to do just that; help build homes for Habitat for Humanity during Women Build.
And not only did they help build homes, they also raised $ 6,125 towards the cause!
Build days kicked off at 8am with the volunteers getting geared up in full PPE attire complete with a tool belt, hard hat, and proper footwear. They continued on to sign up for work and participated in the safety orientation.
From there, the women gathered with their teams to paint, landscape, tile, and do exterior work. Aside from bringing together a group of co-workers for a good cause, it also put our office staff on the construction side of our business.
Most importantly though, as Gerrad Oishi, president and CEO of Habitat for Humanity states it

Over the six Women Build days in May, the volunteers worked towards building two fourplexes in Pineridge for eight happy families.
The homes, once completed, are purchased through Habitat for Humanity with no down payment, no-interest mortgages, and monthly mortgage payments that are a maximum of 25 per cent of the buyer’s monthly income.
Monthly mortgage payments are subsequently reinvested into the home ownership program to help with all future builds along with sweat equity from each family that purchases a home through
