The Board of Directors’ Build has become an annual tradition, of which I’m honored to be a part! This year’s build is especially exciting as it will be the 300th house that Austin Habitat has built. In addition, the 2011 Directors’ Build will kick off the construction of a new neighborhood, Sendero Hills.
As a Board Member of Austin Habitat for Humanity, I truly believe in the vision to eliminate poverty housing through the power of homeownership. Safe and stable homes are the foundation of successful families and communities. But owning a home is not possible for many of our neighbors. As a result of the affordable housing crisis in our community, many families live in overcrowded, deteriorating apartments in crime-ridden neighborhoods. Most of these families are spending the majority of their income on housing, and have little money remaining to pay for other basic necessities, such as food, healthcare, and clothing. Loss of a job or any unexpected expenses, such as a high medical bill, could mean an inability to make rent, forcing families to live in unstable transitional housing or worse...on the streets.
Please join with me in creating hope and stability for families in need. Make a donation today to help end the cycle of poverty housing in our community.
I've had the privilege of serving on Austin Habitat for Humanity's Board of Directors for the past 3 years and have had the opportunity over the past 6 years to volunteer here in Austin and abroad. I’d be honored if you would consider joining me in the fundraising efforts for the 2011 Directors’ Build - which will be the 300th Habitat House here in Austin! Consider sharing a "hand up" with another hardworking Austin family and help them realize their dream of homeownership!!
The wallraising is scheduled for May 7 and if you are interested in building with us then or in the 10-12 weeks following, hand-in-hand with our partner family, I’m happy to reserve a place for you. Andrew and I always have a great time building and would love for you to join us!!
