The 25th Anniversary of Women Build is gearing up to be an exciting event! The creativity and dedication of women in our community is already being shown! But there are still lots of ways to get involved.

We have over 100 women registered on 12 teams! They are from all over our community and are enjoying a little friendly competition while raising money for this year's Women Build Project. Click here to see the teams and support one or more of them!

This is a great opportunity for women in the business community to become corporate sponsors for this build as well. Team Honeycutt, Presbyterian Women of First Presbyterian in Concord, Irresistible Portraits and Ben Mynatt have already signed on! Click here to inquire about how your business can get involved.

We also have some special events and promotions with Women Build. One of these businesses, Irresistible Portraits, is offering a special photo session on May 22nd which will help fund Women Build. Click here to get more details about this generous offer from Irresistible Portraits. Team Heels & Hard Hats will be selling drinks at Jiggy with the Piggy on May 6-7 in Downtown Kannapolis with proceeds benefiting our Women Build.

We also want to thank the Levine Foundation for their $10,000 matching grant for this build as well! To complete this project we need to raise a total of $80,000!

Since 1998, students have come from near and far to build with Habitat Cabarrus during the Collegiate Challenge, a Habitat for Humanity program for students who choose to spend their spring break week building a Habitat home. These young adults bear the costs of travel, lodging, and meals to give of their time and talents to help a family they have never met get one week closer to home ownership.
 
Students in this year's program come from Waynesburg University (PA), Stockton University (NJ), Northwestern University (IL), and Gates County High School (NC).  Thank you to all of these students and to the community partners who have helped to host them!

As we prepare to close the first quarter of the new year, it's best to refocus on those plans of doing good in the community and/or making a difference with a plan and a clear path. Read more to see a list of 5 local nonprofits that are always looking for help.

Please join Habitat Cabarrus in welcoming its newest staff member, Christine Hernandez. Christine re-located from Broward County Florida in 2005. Both she and her husband had job opportunities in the area and once they did their research they quickly realized that Cabarrus County was a great place to raise their family. Even before the move was permanent, visits to the area made them feel that this was "home."

They have attended Concord First Assembly since 2005 as well, and when a vacancy in the finance department opened up in 2009, it was an opportunity for Christine to work closer to home and be available to participate in school and extra-curricular activities with her children. Working at CFA was great experience for this next chapter here at Habitat Cabarrus which began in February. Christine feels extremely blessed for this opportunity and looks forward to getting more directly involved in this great community!
Performance Learning Center On March 4th, a group of high school students from Cabarrus County Schools' Performance Learning Center came out and worked on a build site with Habitat Cabarrus as part of an out of class learning experience. The students showed their support for Habitat and the future homeowner by helping us put up siding and performing a variety of other tasks needed in order to build the home.
