Another Habitat home is completed and other home build will soon begin. The final two homes on Rock Street, Lowell are completed and the 2 families are enjoying their new homes. They are enjoying being home owners and the security that comes with it. In just a few weeks construction of two more homes in Lowell will begin and the Jordan and Hebert Families of Rock Street will hand over the shovels to the Bullard and Bamunoba families as we break ground for what will be new homes for both families. Please join us on April 10 at 9am as we celebrate the dedication of 53-55 Rock Street Lowell which will be followed by the ground breaking of 137 Willie Street,Lowell.
It takes many hands to build a home. Be one of the 1000′s of volunteers needed to turn a vacant lot into two safe, decent, energy efficient, affordable homes. All this could not happen without the dedication and support of the community. Join us for the Willie Street Build 2014.
Women Build is Habitat for Humanity’s program for women who want to learn construction skills and together build homes and communities. Women Build brings together women from all walks of life to address the housing crisis facing millions of women and children worldwide. This year, come build with us on Willie Street Lowell.
