We're all about women supporting women at HIIT Like a Girl, and this year, we've chosen to support the Habitat for Humanity Women Build 2018 as our Charity Partner. During the weeks leading up to Mother's Day (May 13), Habitat for Humanity of Winchester-Frederick-Clarke will be raising funds to help offset the cost of construction of a new home for Kaleah, a single mother raising 4 daughters. The goal of Women Build is to empower women to help families in our community build strength, stability and independence.
Women and children make up the majority of people populating Habitat homes, as they are most likely to be affected by local housing insecurity. Together we can create positive change in our neighborhoods as we build a two-story home for a family partner in need of a hand up, not a hand out. The project will break ground in June 2018 and will follow a 280-day build schedule, during which time, your participation will help spotlight the homeownership challenges face by women.
If you'd like to support Kaleah and her daughters' new home, please donate here. And if you'd like a spot on our build day team for the fall, please email Zara@Hiitlag.com.
