Empowering Women in Johnson County, IN
It's fall in Indiana and with that comes one of my favorite times of year. With the cool weather comes cozy sweaters, favorite boots, and all of my favorite colors transforming the trees. One of my favorite activities is joining Habitat for Humanity of Johnson County Women's Build.
Approximately every other year the build focuses on bringing women together to offer a hand up to a well deserving single mother and her family. Two years ago a friend asked me to join her team. It was an experience like no other and as uncertain as I was with my building skills the day was full of rewarding and empowering moments. Women cheering each other on and collaborating to work towards a common goal. I was hooked.
Fast forward to two years later I was asked to lead a team. You see the build is comprised of several days lead by teams who not only get to build that day, but also raise funds for the many supplies that are needed to create this home. I didn't hesitate to say, 'yes', and quickly asked my client to join forces. The Barn at Bay Horse Inn was just a few weeks old at the time, but owner Amanda Cottingham, rarely turns down an opportunity to serve her community. Together we brainstormed who to invite on our team as well as fundraising ideas.
