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 6-14 to make an impact on the local family buying the home.
We’re excited to be partnering with Ozarks Live! again for our special media day event on Friday, May 12, 2017! The cast of Ozarks Live! will spend the day volunteering and share a special news cast live from the job site! Thank you, Ozarks Live! for your continued support of Habitat for Humanity!
