Women Build 2016 has been a huge success so far and we would like to give a special thank you to our corporate sponsors. Some donated financially and others also came out for a build day including

Also, we'd like to give a big thank you to our
Women Build volunteer teams. Hundreds of women have come out to the job site and worked on every construction task. Visit our website to see photos from all of their build days! We appreciate all of your hard work!
Be sure to attend our Women Build Dedication ceremony on July 25 at 6pm. The event will take place at Magnolia Crossing Cir NW, Concord, NC 28027.
Earlier this month we dedicated our 144th and 145th new homes in Cabarrus County to Kristina and her three daughters and Coni along with her son and two daughters. This is also the 9th and 10th Habitat homes in the Logan community (which are side-by-side), which has revitalized an entire street into rainbow row in the vein of a street in Charleston.
Many came out to welcome Kristina and Coni home. They each put in over 250 sweat equity hours on her home and other Habitat homes and will assume a 0% mortgage.
like to congratulate them and their families on completing their new homes and thank everyone who helped them along the way. We work to strengthen our community by building homes for those in need, while at the same time developing the bonds that we all share as neighbors.
We often say that Cabarrus County has a special non-profit community. Proof of that is the support Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) is showing to our Women Build. Why are they so interested in this particular house? Because all five of the grandchildren who will call it their home have been or currently are Little Sisters in the program!
Earlier this year, University of Saint Joseph pharmacy student Dillon Keefe decided to do something big with his vacation time. School had ended and he had a six-week break before graduation, so he chose to take a trip around the country helping families in need with Habitat for Humanity.
"After nearly three straight years of schooling, I was starting to yearn for something that would get me out of a desk and put some callouses on my hands. I have always wanted to get involved with Habitat, and this was my perfect opportunity to do so."
