“It has taken me five years to be approved to build and buy a home through Habitat but I never gave up. I want my daughters to know that even as a single mom with one income, with hard work and dedication, your dreams can come true.” -Shawnta Coleman
Thank you to all our 2021 International Women Build Week volunteers! Your work alongside Mercedes and Shawnta building their families’ homes will have a lasting impact on these strong Habitat moms and their children! Shawnta and Mercedes are two of 18 single moms Trinity Habitat is building with this year.
Shoutout to the women of Dickies, the The Greater Fort Worth Builders Association Women’s Council, FW Councilpersons Ann Zadeh and Kelly Allen Gray, Trinity Habitat board member Kathy Bedward, Lowe’s Home Improvement, and La Madeleine French Bakery & Café for their support! Also, thank you to our Project Managers, Perrin Mack and Jim Fry, and all the Cornerstone leaders who supported our volunteers!
Trinity Habitat supports and empowers WOMEN in construction! Starting with our Senior Director of Construction, we have seven women in our construction department and train thousands of women construction volunteers every year!
Women Build brings together women from all walks of life to address the housing crisis faced by women and children throughout the Greater Fort Worth Area. Having a safe and decent place to live can bring stability and provides a foundation from which families can reach their full potential.
Through our Build-A-Home program, Habitat families work with donors, volunteers, and community partners to build their home and strengthen their neighborhoods.
65% of Trinity Habitat families are women-led households!
Mercedes and Shawnta are only 2 of 18 single moms Trinity Habitat is building with this year. We need your support to build with all 18 of these STRONG moms!
