She Builds To Root
People and children especially thrive when they feel rooted in their homes. The ability to paint a room whatever color you like, setup a swing set in the back yard or affix a basketball hoop above your garage door may seem insignificant, but to a child it equates to a sense of permanency, stability and eventually, roots. She Builds To Root would like to help nurture a family’s roots by building a home they can call their own. ...................................She Builds To Root is a group of women coming together to share our time and talents to nurture a more grounded community.

About This Campaign
Women from all over Hillsborough County are joining together, once again, to make the dream of home-ownership a reality for a single mother in Hillsborough County.
Last year we built a home for Tangie Burton and her 4 sons. The year before, we built a home for Candice Cowen and her 4 children, 2 boys and 2 girls. Both years, women not only built the homes for the families mentioned; they also raised the funds that paid for the land and materials needed.
In 2017 we raised $86,000.
In 2018 we raised $121,000.
Lets make this year our best one yet!
What is Women Build About?
Women Build is a call to action for women looking to better their community and spread awareness of the challenges for families who can’t afford decent housing. It empowers women volunteers to participate in an exciting experience constructing a home for a local single mother.
Between April 6th and June 15th, 2019, teams of women will work together on a designated build site to physically construct a Habitat home for a limited-income family in Hillsborough County.
**Each team or individual is welcome to schedule one full day to work on the build site.**
*Teams and individuals will raise enough money to fund a new home construction project.
**Individual fundraising requirement to build: $600
**Team fundraising requirement to build depends on the number of women on team. BUT the average team for the Women Build is 10 so, 10 team members = $6,000 team goal.
