Habitat for Humanity of Monroe County (HFHMC) has been selected as the May recipient of funding from 100+ Women Who Care. The women have so far collected $12,600 in support of HFHMC’s affordable home construction program.
“We are so appreciative of this gift and the support of 100+ Women Who Care,” said Wendi Goodlett, HFHMC President and CEO. “The funds will immediately be put to use serving families seeking stability through shelter.”
Each quarter, members of 100+ Women Who Care nominate local nonprofit organizations, present on their mission and the impact funds will have and then and vote on an award recipient. The group of nearly 180 women has supported approximately 28 organizations in Bloomington since 2011.
“The pandemic has emphasized how critical home is to everyone’s security and well-being, yet many in our community still do not have access to safe and affordable housing,” shares Goodlett. “The need for our program was made evident by the number of people who attended our recent homeownership program meeting—78 families in total—the highest attendance we’ve ever had in an open session.”
