Rick Case Habitat Community in Pompano Beach (1400 NW 6th Avenue, Pompano Beach, FL.)

WHAT: 

Women Build is Habitat for Humanity’s initiative to empower women to address the affordable housing crisis in our community. The event is a fundraiser and friend-raiser for Habitat for Humanity of Broward. Funds are needed to meet costs to build modest, energy-efficient, 1200-1280 square foot homes in the Rick Case Habitat Community.  The Community will be the first of its kind in Broward County and will have 77 homes consisting of 42 one-story homes and 35 two-story homes.  There will be 5 different models with 3-4 bedrooms.

WHO:

Habitat for Humanity of Broward, celebrating 35 years of service to our community, will partner with over 110 top executives and women employees from Broward County companies including Rick Case Automotive Group, Stiles Corporation, Bank of America, Miller Construction, Wells Fargo and the Wadsworth Family Foundation.

Women Build is co-chaired by Nancy Daly, former board member and longtime Habitat advocate, and Raquel Case of Rick Case Automotive Group.  The Sponsor for the final Women Build this year is Rick Case Automotive Group.  Lunch and our DJ are courtesy of their generosity.

The Case family have been longtime supporters of Habitat Broward starting in 2004 and joined the Women Build event in 2010. “A Rick Case Habitat Community; is the largest single-family affordable homeownership community undertaken by a nonprofit in Broward County to date,” shared Nancy Robin, CEO.

WHY:

Broward is among the most cost-burdened housing markets in the nation. Habitat serves those earning 30% to 80% of the area median income. These are hard-working grocery clerks, healthcare workers, public safety personnel and even teachers whose rental costs consume more than 50% of their monthly income.
