[Video] Introducing Cassie Hawrysh: Women Build Ambassador

Posted by Lisa Hallet on Mar 22, 2017 9:18:10 AM

Cassie is one of six Calgary women stepping forward to advocate for the need for affordable housing in our city

Right now, more than 4,000 people are on the waitlist for social housing in Calgary. Our city is expensive, and women and children are the populations most likely to be affected by unstable living conditions.

Cassie, along with five other local women, has taken on the role of Women Build Ambassador, to mobilize the community to address the need for affordable housing through Habitat for Humanity's Women Build

For Cassie, being part of Women Build is about taking control of our journey and our life. Watch her story to see what inspired her to become an Ambassador.



Meet all six Women Build Ambassadors
