Women Build Ambassador: Carol Rees

I’ve been a Habitat home owner for almost 15 years now. I’m a single mother of twin girls and before Habitat, I was struggling financially to support the three of us – in ten years we moved eleven times and it was very, very difficult.

I remember when we were accepted as a Habitat partner family and my girls were doing cartwheels and somersaults and I was speechless. Our home has given me a sense of confidence and peace, and it’s given my daughters stability and continuity.

I helped to build my own home with Habitat and that’s why Women Build is so special to me. It’s important for women to help build! It makes you feel powerful, capable and strong. You see that you can lift rolls of sod, you can swing a hammer, and you start to know that you are capable.

Superpower: I would help every single mom out there to achieve the strength and the confidence that I’ve been able to achieve through Habitat.

Every woman has the power to change the world. Register for Women Build YYC today.
