Atlanta Habitat Women’s Build; A core group of women have persisted for 15 years, building homes for single mothers

To celebrate its 15th anniversary this year, the Atlanta Women’s Build recruited close to 700 women volunteers from all walks of life to build two homes side-by-side in Hammond Park for two single moms. The build, which began in late September and will be complete in mid-November, includes five new sponsors who joined a growing circle of committed corporate sponsors including: Broadspire & Optum, Equifax, Wells Fargo, Delta Air Lines, Commercial Real Estate Women of Atlanta (CREW), Cox Enterprises, Drew, Eckl & Farnham, LLP, Macy’s, Paul Hastings, LLP, Southern Company Gas, Stanley Black & Decker, United Rentals. 

The build raised over $200,000 and engaged over 20 individual teams including neighborhood groups, sororities, civic and corporate cohorts and themed teams. Want a bit of inspiration to round out your day? Take a look at our photo-essay of the 2018 Atlanta Women’s Build.
