Description

Support this year's Women Build by shopping at our new Chesterfield ReStore on the hours of 5:30PM-7:30PM. All proceeds raised during these two hours will go towards the fundraising goal for this Spring's Women Build home! Learn more about the family below. We also will have drinks for sale (beer and wine) with proceeds supporting Women Build so bring some money for that if you wish sip while you shop. Water and lite food will also be served. You must RSVP here in order to shop that night!

Habitat for Humanity’s Women Build program brings together women from all walks of life to address the housing crisis facing millions of women and children worldwide.

That night ladies can also sign up for their Women Build day. This year's project will start in March of 2019 and go through June!

Spring Women Build Family:

Shaniqua Oliver is proud single-mother to her 2 year old daughter Averi. Since the age of 16, Shaniqua has been supporting herself. She has been determined to be self-sufficient and make a better life for she and her daughter.

Growing up, Shaniqua moved at least once a year, never really understanding what having a stable home feels like. She wants nothing more than provide her daughter with the stable, comfortable and familiar home she never had growing up.

Shaniqua works full-time as an activity supervisor at a day support center for senior citizens. In their free time, Shaniqua and Averi enjoy reading books together, going to the park, and dancing.

Shaniqua found out about Richmond Habitat’s affordable homeownership program through a friend. She took a chance, applied and was accepted.

Now Shaniqua is diligently working to complete her 350 hours of “sweat equity” and 10 financial and homeownership education classes before closing on her home. When her house is completed next year, Shaniqua will purchase her home and pay an affordable, zero percent interest mortgage, making her dream of homeownership a reality.

“Thank you! This means the world to me. Knowing that you’ve assisted me with creating a stable foundation for my family; I’m forever indebted to you.” - Shaniqua Oliver, Future Homeowner
