Building a Better Community for Women — One House at a Time

Posted on: March 3rd, 2016

Appleton, a woman-owned business, is always looking for great opportunities to encourage and assist women. Habitat for Humanity’s Women Build 2016 is so important to us because we believe that supporting women is integral to promoting diversity within not only business, but also our entire community.

Each year during the month of April, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Orlando hosts a local Women Build event, a national movement that empowers women across the country to fundraise and build homes for first-time female homeowners. It’s an event that is not only for women who love giving back to their communities. It’s for any woman who desires to learn construction skills, network with other women, strengthen relationships with employees and friends or take action against the housing crisis facing millions worldwide.

Habitat for Humanity is a global nonprofit housing organization that is dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally and worldwide. The organization’s efforts are far-reaching and include constructing, rehabilitating and preserving homes; advocating for fair and just housing policies; and providing training and access to resources that help families improve their shelter conditions.

Habitat for Humanity of Greater Orlando’s 2016 Women Build will take place in Butler’s Preserve from April 23rd to May 7th. This year’s new home is being built for Rhonza Howard, a United States Navy veteran and mother of four. Rhonza currently lives with her three youngest sons in a two-bedroom townhouse, where she sleeps on the couch. Her oldest son was diagnosed with brain cancer and suffers from frequent seizures. Despite the obstacles and devastation throughout her life, Rhonza has been the pillar of strength for her children. She and her family are now only months away from experiencing the beauty of homeownership. Click here to learn more about Rhonza Howard, Orlando’s 2016 Women Build homeowner.
