2020 Power Women, Power Tools
Why I Build!

Why I Build Event Challenge Contestants Though we are physically apart, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles’ (Habitat LA) supporters are still building together. To drum up anticipation of 2020 Power Women, Power Tools virtual event presented by City National Bank, many volunteers participated in challenges prior to the event, showing how they build better futures in Los Angeles!

Habitat LA works in a number of different ways to create decent, affordable housing. In addition to new construction, Habitat LA also:

  • renovates existing homes
  • helps people repair and improve their own homes and neighborhoods
  • works with local communities to address a variety of housing needs after natural disasters
  • advocates to change laws and shape policies that affect access to housing
  • partners with organizations to serve even more families with innovative resources

There are many ways to build with Habitat LA. Our volunteers recorded videos describing why they build with Habitat LA. The videos from partner families, volunteers and donors focused on building homes, communities and hope. Congratulations to our overall winner Bridgette G. who shared how as a “Power Woman” she helps build by helping other women recognize their power within to make their dreams come true. Thank you to everyone who participated. Through all of your efforts, we are all building better futures!
