Hillary Pritchard, Community Outreach Director for Habitat for Humanity in Whatcom County, will be our guest speaker on Thursday, Jan. 31. Habitat is a local organization that builds homes in partnership with families earning poverty wages and in need of a safe, decent, affordable home.
Hillary will be speaking about Habitat’s program Women Build. Women Build provides volunteer opportunities for anyone to make a difference with the Habitat program and learn how to build a home, no experience necessary. The Women Build initiative provides the opportunity for women to take a proactive step in serving their communities by building strength, stability and self-reliance through the construction of decent affordable housing. Volunteers work under the guidance of construction professionals, and also alongside other volunteers and future Habitat homeowners.
Join us at noon at the Gateway Centre to hear more about Women Build.
