In September 2020 Micah Beverly became a first-time homeowner with Atlanta Habitat for Humanity (AHFH). This could not have happened without the financial and volunteer support from Marist Women Build.
Like so many organizations in 2020, AHFH had to modify their business operations due to Covid-19, and just a few days before construction began, our build was put on hold. We are grateful for the builders and sponsors who donated $80,000 toward MWB house #20. Although our 300+ volunteers were not able to build, our funds provided the needed financial support to complete the home. What normally would have taken 8 days of building, a dedicated team of 4 AHFH skilled supervisors built the home in 90 days.
2020 was a build like no other…a VIRTUAL build! The end result was another home built, another extremely happy family, and another Marist Women Build mission accomplished.
