Across the nation, women will unite in more than 235 communities for International Women Build Week (March 1-8) and the Lexington Habitat for Humanity participated with a Women’s Build event.

This particular event celebrates the powerful and compassionate women who support affordable housing as LHFH homeowners, volunteers, supporters, and staff members. Mayor Linda Gorton was on hand to observe the progress and meet the family that will be living in this home.

The Women Build volunteers are working on the future home of Lexington Habitat partners Patrick, Stacy, and their three boys. This family has lived in Lexington their entire lives and have always imagined raising their family here.

“We will finally have a stable home to raise our family in,” Patrick says. “We really appreciate everything the volunteers, sponsors, and Lexington Habitat staff are doing to make our dreams come true. It’s hard to put everything we really mean into words. We’re forever grateful.”

Since 1991, Women Build volunteers from all over come together to build stronger and safer communities. Lexington Habitat’s Women Build events provide the opportunity for women to take a proactive step in serving their communities.
