Congratulations to the 300 women, (and some men!) that came to support our annual Women’s Empowerment Build. The event was completely sold out and the turnout was amazing, even while the skies threatened rain. Santa Clarita City Councilmembers Laurene Weste, Marsha McLean, and Mayor Pro Tem Dante Acosta conducted opening ceremonies and the women went straight to work. These amazing people came with a mission and succeeded!
One hundred women planted two enormous hillsides within the 78-home Enriched Neighborhood® Veteran Community. Sixty women installed Decomposed Granite thoughout the pathways within the children’s park. Forty women framed an entire home, from the ground up, within only a few hours! Sixty women formed and built four concrete walls within the retention basins. Twenty women built a cinder block wall to perfection. Twenty women prepared art projects for our My Time® Center in order to support our Veteran wraparound programming.
