24 May Women Build 2019
On Saturday, May 18th, 2019 the Fugleberg Koch Women Build team participated in our scheduled Women Build Day hosted by Habitat for Humanity Seminole – Apopka. Our Habitat for Humanity Journey began earlier this year when we started raising money to reach our fundraising minimum, which we quickly exceeded by raising $3,887.75. We could not have reached our goal without the support of our co-workers, our consultants, our families and friends, so THANK YOU!
When women connect, we challenge each other to succeed; when women give, we improve our world and when women build, we change our community for the better.
Did you know that Central Florida ranks third nationally in lack of affordable housing? In Seminole County and Greater Apopka, no full-time minimum wage employee can afford a one-bedroom apartment. Families have to choose between keeping a roof over their heads or putting food on the table.
In Seminole County & Greater Apopka, 63% of single female households, including 24,565 children, live below the poverty level. Poverty and substandard housing are a severe threat to children’s health, growth and potential, and is a key component in the continuing cycle of poverty. Building homes with Habitat for Humanity is a concrete way to address the problem; providing the opportunity for safe, decent and affordable housing and a key ingredient in breaking the cycle of poverty. Women Build events provide the opportunity for women to take a proactive step in serving their communities.
