What is Women Build?
Women from our area come together in a month-long effort to build a home for a low-income, hardworking family here in our community.
Why Sponsor Women Build?
Can you imagine trying to raise a family of four and trying to purchase a home when you earn only $30,200 a year? The partner family we are building for is Roude and Nancy Deravine, and that is exactly what they are doing. Roude is a night shift line leader at Perdue Farms. His wife, Nancy, put herself through Wor-Wic Community College to become a Geriatric Nursing Assistant and Certified Medicine Aide. They left behind the violence and civil unrest of Haiti and worked for many years to become United States Citizens. But, their rental housing is substandard, and their neighborhood is crime and drug-ridden. Looking for a better opportunity for their children, they have come to Habitat to work toward a better future for themselves and their family.
We need $126,000 to finish the Deravine’s house!
