Habitat for Humanity’s “Executive Women’s Build:” Setting women up for success

Habitat hosted a one-day Executive Women’s Build this month in Sun Prairie’s Vandenburg Heights neighborhood. Thirty female executives spent the day on the construction site, including future homeowners Amber and Angela, who will both be living in the homes that were worked on during the day.
Amber is a mother to 13-year-old twin daughters, a six-year-old daughter, and a nine-month-old son. Amber first attended a Habitat homeowner informational meeting in 2009 and just recently applied to make her longtime dream of homeownership into a reality.
Angela is a dental assistant and a mother to four-year-old daughter, Averie. Angela has been working very hard to give Averie a home she can grow up in and always know she can come back to.
While Habitat’s mission is to provide homes for hardworking individuals and families of all shapes and sizes, the Executive Women’s Build specifically focuses on building by women and for women, giving them the tools they need to build strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter.
