Did you know that every 1 lb. box of nails costs $10? Or, that every foundation costs about $10,000? Each Habitat home costs about $120,000 to build. It is only through the generosity of donors that we are able to help build homes for people earning 30%-80% of the average income in Lake County, Indiana.
Each year we host “Women Build” for much of the year. This is a fundraising event designed to help defray to cost of building a home for one of our partner families. Each team of up to 8 people raises $1,000 ($125 per person) to join us for a unique experience. Women Build dates are available every Thursday, Friday and Saturday from April 23 through October 31.
This year, Women Build volunteers and fundraisers will help build a home for Rhonda and her children! Rhonda is a local waitress with two young children. We look to you to work alongside Rhonda to help build a safe, affordable home for her family.
Please help by joining a team or creating your own team! Teams of 8 raise $1,000 or $125 per person to help cover the cost of building this home.
- For every ten teams that participate, we’ve raised $10,000… that pays for the foundation!
- Another $10,000 pays for all the walls in the house!
- Another $10,000 pays for all the sewer, water and gas lines for the house!
- And on and on… until we reach $120,000!
Corporate sponsorship opportunities are available!
