This Mother’s Day season, we ask for your help in supporting Habitat for Humanity of Springfield, Missouri’s participation in a nationwide Habitat for Humanity initiative uniting thousands of women in creating affordable housing in partnership with families across the United States.
Habitat’s Women Build program recruits, educates and nurtures women to build – and advocate for – simple, decent and affordable houses in their communities. Our goal is to have 50 women participate in the build from May 5-13, 2018 to make an impact on the local family buying the home.
