California Commission on the Status of Women and Girls and CA Women’s Caucus members build homes for local single mothers and low-income families
On Thursday, March 31st , the California Commission on the Status of Women and Girls hosted female leaders from the Commission, including the California Women’s Caucus, and state leadership on the Habitat for Humanity jobsite to officially conclude Habitat’s month-long Women Build event, an event which brought together over 550 women from across the region to help build critically needed affordable housing for single mothers and low-income families. The special “Women Leaders Build” included a press conference on the CCSWG #CAWomenAreEssential campaign. Members of the Women’s Caucus and State Treasurer Betty Yee worked alongside CCSWG Commissioners and the future homeowners of Habitat’s Mandolin Estates development – a project which will provide affordable homeownership to 60 low-income individuals, five of whom are single mothers with children.
