The subdivision off of East Pinhook and Magnolia is finally coming together.
Thursday marks a new project that encourages women to get out and help build the homes.

“Melinda Taylor, the Executive Director for Lafayette Habitat for Humanity says this is their first year for doing a long term women build. “We are very excited about it, we’ve done a Spring women build for just a couple of days, but this is a long-term commitment for a lot of women in our community,” says Taylor.

This is known as the Lafayette Habitat for Humanity “Women Build” project.
The all female program will continue untilNovemberr 19th giving volunteers the chance to give back to the community.
The sponsors for the house under construction is homebank, which donated the funds to help cover the costs of construction materials needed for the home, that will be named ‘The Women Build Home’.

Susan Allardyce, the marketing coordinator for HomeBank says “It’s really rewarding to come out and build and do a little sweating.”

Four homes out of the 13 home subdivision are finished and livable.
Two homes are currently under construction including the Savoy Home which will house a hardworking mother and her 5 children.
The rest of the homes in the subdivision are expected to be completed in a year.
