Morris Habitat Women Build is seeking Sponsors and Volunteers

Morris Habitat for Humanity’s Women Build Seeking Sponsors and Volunteers in Morris and Middlesex Counties

  

RANDOLPH, N.J., Morris Habitat for Humanity, a major builder and leading advocate for affordable housing in New Jersey, is seeking sponsors and women volunteers to build homes for low- to moderate-income families in Morris and Middlesex Counties.   

  

The Morris Habitat Women Build Event is a grassroots effort led by women and supportive men to sponsor, volunteer and construct homes for families in need. This year’s event will take place from May 6 – May 17. The unique opportunity highlights the ways that Morris Habitat empowers women to help build strength, stability and self-reliance for families in need.

“We’re excited to empower and inspire women to help Habitat homeowners realize their dreams of owning affordable homes,” said Liz DeCoursey, Morris Habitat for Humanity CEO. “We’ll be engaging business leaders and women of all skill levels to join their colleagues, friends and neighbors to help strengthen their communities.” 

  

This year, Morris Habitat is teaming up with Women Build Ambassador Stacey Moore to help expand the event to include more

volunteers and local businesses. Moore, a relationship manager with Lakeland Bank, has volunteered with Women Build for two years and has installed insulation, cut floor molding, and done exterior clean up at home build sites. 

  

“I believe in the idea of contributing to the building of these homes for families who otherwise may not be able to afford them and raise awareness of the need for affordable housing,” said Moore. The most important thing about being involved with Morris Habitat is the sense of gratitude that we get to contribute to a roof over someone’s head. We contribute to someone who is going to call this place home. If you know you can be a tiny piece of that, I can’t imagine why people wouldn’t want to be involved.” 

  

No previous construction experience is required. All women and supportive men 18 years and older are welcome to participate.
