In Seminole County and the Greater Apopka area, 63% of single female households, including 24,565 children, live below the poverty level. Poverty and substandard housing are a severe threat to children’s health, growth and potential, and is a key component in the continuing cycle of poverty. Building homes with Habitat for Humanity is a concrete way to address the problem, providing the opportunity for safe, decent and affordable housing and a key ingredient in breaking the cycle of poverty.
You can join hundreds of Central Florida Women coming together to build stronger, safer communities during the 2020 Women Build Campaign this Spring!
Each year, women from all over Seminole County and Greater Apopka team up to combine their efforts, ski, ls and networks to help local families build strength, stability and self-reliance through homeownership. When women connect, we challenge each other to succeed; when women give, we improve our world and when Women Build, we change our community for the better.
