Fort Collins Habitat Women Build Program is building in partnership with the Rzonca family in 2015, and we need your help, as part of 100 women giving $1,000 to make a life-long impact!
The Rzonca home is in the finishing stages. The home is framed, sided and painted. Now the interior is being completed as the electrical and plumbing are being installed.
Last year over 100 women came together, many of them new to lifting a hammer, and generously gave time and $1,000 to build a Habitat home in partnership with the Riley family. Some gave a one-time gift, some gave $88 a month for a year, and some brought together a giving team. All made it possible. As someone who builds our community, you are a Women Builder. This year, you are invited to build alongside the Rzonca family, the 2015 Women Build partner.
Just as importantly, we want you to tell us “What Women Want”. Women Build is about permanent life change and we want the site, events, and volunteer opportunities to reflect those who support it. Below are the key dates for the 2015 Women Build.

Meet Emily Peddicord, our Women Builder of the week. Emily talks about her experience as Women Builder.
“I first got involved with Habitat for Humanity because I felt my experience and connections could help build houses.
I naturally felt drawn the help with Women Build as well. This is my second year being involved with Women Build.
My favorite moment was seeing all the women in pink hardhats at the wall-raising last year.”
Hope you will join us for the Women Build Kick-Off!
