2019 Women Build

 

Across our community, women and children are the most impacted by substandard living conditions. The Knoxville Habitat Women Build is your opportunity to join other women in spotlighting the housing challenges local women face. At the same time, you’ll help to build a safe, permanent home with a special mother and her family.

You are invited to devote one day (or more!) to help a local family build their home. Join us, and invite your friends!

We’ll kick off on Saturday, May 11th (Mother’s Day weekend), and for five Saturdays women will unite for a common purpose, overcome challenges and raise awareness to the barriers that women face in securing affordable homes.

With your support of the 2019 Women Build, we can continue empowering women to help families build strength, stability and self-reliance.

Women Build Family - Meagan and her three young children.

Meet the Women Build Family

Meagan is the model of a dedicated, hardworking mother. She goes above and beyond to provide the best possible life for her three young children, D’Anthony (6), Mariah (5) and Ja’marius (3).D’Anthony, Mariah and Ja’marius are sweet, energetic children that love to run around and play. Unfortunately, that is not possible in the apartment where they live now. After hearing gunshots outside and having several incidents in their complex, Meagan does not feel safe with her kids playing outside. As a result, this concerned mother knew that her family’s living situation had to change.

Knowing that she didn’t want to work another dead-end job, Meagan enrolled in technical school and graduated with honors. She is now a Medical Assistant with a clinic that works directly with patients battling Alzheimer’s and other dementia types. She is so thankful that she decided to take this step to “level up” her life and loves her rewarding work.

Meagan has worked hard to get to this point and is excited for what the future holds. Her goal is that her Habitat home “will give [her kids] structure in life.” After moving from apartment to apartment their whole lives, she wants them to know their new home “is where they belong.”

They all agree that they are most excited about the possibility of getting a trampoline once they move into their new Habitat home. D’Anthony, Mariah and Ja’marius are so excited to have their very own yard so they can run and play as much as they want.
