HabiJax 2017 Women's Build
Helping to break the cycle of female poverty in Jacksonville
With homeownership and financial stability women gain the self-respect and confidence to succeed in life and the commitment to serve as positive role models for their children and for their neighborhoods.
As families move out of inadequate housing and into homes of their own, they have a new sense of pride and independence. Their children can develop in an environment that fosters better learning, better health and better habits for their future.
With homeownership and financial stability, comes the self-respect and confidence to succeed in life and the commitment to serve as positive role models for their children and for their neighborhood.
Please join in supporting the 2017 Women’s Build.
With our collective time, talent and monetary donations we can
make significant strides towards achieving our goal.
Safe, decent, affordable shelter breaks the cycle of poverty
HabiJax’s 2017 Women’s Build will provide struggling female head-of-household families in Jacksonville with the strong foundation of homeownership. Upon this foundation, these women can build a stable and self-reliant future for their families.
