During the past 25 years, East St. Tammany’s Habitat for Humanity chapter has grown into a full construction organization building 140 homes and providing 436 parents and children safe, decent affordable housing. Construction on homes 141 and 142 started last month.
The goal is to build simple, decent, affordable homes for families in need. By partnering with strong community members and targeting geographic locations that are desirable and functional towards improving their quality of life, Habitat for Humanity aims to provide a basic human need that will positively impact the community.
The “Rosie’s” doing the heavy lifting
All-female crews, called “Rosie’s,” honor the iconic World War II embodiment of female empowerment in the work force; also known as Rosie the Riveter.
This year, the Rosies had nine teams, comprised of 9-14 women each, with each crew working one full day. Being a Rosie requires more than just posing for an amazing photo. All Rosies must raise $500 each in sponsorships, and donate their time and sweat to build a home.
Please Consider Helping Today…
We challenge you to be a part of this mission. There are so many ways to use your own personal talents and gifts to benefit a family in need. Whether it’s through advocacy, volunteering or donating, your partnership will help us in the fight to end poverty housing in our community and put another family one step closer to simple, decent, affordable housing.
