One of the goals of the National Women Build Week is to create awareness of the program and illustrate how women support Habitat's home building mission. During that week the construction team will be predominantly women and the site will receive additional community involvement, media coverage and visits from local dignitaries.
The homebuyer for the home to be built during National Women Build 2017 is Brittany Holley. Brittany qualified for the Habitat Homeownership program in March of 2016 and is working hard at completing the requirements of the program. She is a working single mother of three and is going to school to pursue a degree in Criminal Justice. Brittany just received a scholarship from State College of Florida which is specifically targeted for a Habitat homebuyer.
