SGV Habitat for Humanity to host Women’s History Month events

Habitat for Humanity’s San Gabriel Valley chapter is extending its annual Women Build activities through the month of March, the organization announced Monday. 

To commemorate Women’s History Month, event organizers expected “hundreds of women and their allies” to help construct homes and draw attention to the issue of homeownership for women as an integral part of the struggle toward economic equity. 

Households headed by single female renters spent more have recently seen 30% of their income consumed by housing costs, and only half of LA County women own homes, according to SGV Habitat for Humanity. 

“Women, especially those who serve as head of their families and women of color, disproportionately face obstacles to accessing decent, affordable housing,” according to SGV Habitat. “Women Build gives women an opportunity to change the status quo and make a lasting impact.”

Women Build participants of all ages will have these opportunities to build and improve housing properties in Azusa, Baldwin Park, Duarte, Pasadena and El Sereno:

Saturday, 10:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. — Build A Planter Event at the Pasadena ReStore, 32 N. Sierra Madre Blvd.;

March 9, 10 a.m.-noon — Garden Rock Painting at the Duarte ReStore, 2215 Huntington Drive;

March 14, 8 a.m. — Construction Kickoff in Baldwin Park at 4428 Stewart Ave.; and

March 23, 10 a.m.-1 p.m. — Women in Construction Career Presentation at the SGV Habitat headquarters in Monrovia, 724 E. Huntington Drive.

More activities will be added throughout March, including a celebration of home ownership and a home preservation project, according to SGV Habitat. 

Additional information for volunteers and event registration is on the Women Build website starting Friday.
