Habitat for Humanity CFC’s Women Build is excited to host its 9th Annual Gourmet Tasting & Fundraiser on Thursday, November 2 from 6 to 9 PM at Aitoro Appliances in Norwalk. Funds raised from the event will support the building of the 14th Women Build home in Fairfield County.
Habitat CFC and Women Build help hardworking, low-income families achieve a better life while improving neighborhoods and their communities. Qualified families participate in financial workshops and homeownership courses as part of their 500 hours of sweat equity investment to the program. Families purchase the homes with 0 percent interest mortgages and their payments are put back into building more homes for more families. This effective program turns blighted properties into quality homes and transforms struggling families into tax-paying homeowners and valued members of our shared community.
Women Build does not exclude men, but instead empowers women to make a difference by learning new skills and using them to build homes for those in need. Women bond and benefit from working together on a construction project, and enjoy the satisfaction of helping families that are committed to helping themselves.
