Habitat for Humanity San Fernando/Santa Clarita Valleys (SF/SCV) is excited to announce the the 2013 Women Empowerment Build (WE Build). Habitat will welcome all to be a part of this empowering event where local women join forces to build veteran homes in their local community.

Led by: 2013, Chairwoman, Cheri Fleming, owner of Valencia Acura and President-elect of Soroptomist International, Women Empowerment Build encourages volunteers to make a difference and provides an opportunity for women to learn construction techniques in a supportive environment.
Purpose: to engage Habitat for Humanity female family members who are going to receive homes and female community members in an empowering day of working together towards the common goal of building Habitat for Humanity SF/SCV’s newHabitat for Heroes Veteran community in Santa Clarita.
Special this Year: Honoring our female veterans, widows of the fallen, and those who have persevered despite tragic losses incurred during wartime. In addition to our speakers, there will be a special WWII veteran who exemplifies women in the armed forces.
Registration: Includes a t-shirt and pink hard hat for each participant, continental breakfast, sponsor fair, safety briefing, building assignments, build, lunch and speakers, training and competitions.
The event will be held off-site from where the homes are being built, but participants will be building elements of the neighborhood that will later go into the 87-home community in Santa Clarita.
