Women Build Day 2018 @Telegraph Townhomes
May 5th, 2018, is Habitat Whatcom’s annual Women Build Day. This will be the first year that serious headway is made on our Telegraph Townhomes site!
About Telegraph Townhomes
Designed to serve the 42% of Whatcom County residents (82,000 people) who struggle to afford stable shelter, Telegraph Townhomes will be the largest project undertaken by Habitat for Humanity in Whatcom County.
This innovative project will double our impact within the next 5 years. And with mortgage options as low as $350 per month, Telegraph Townhomes is the first major step in mending our county’s broken housing continuum.
Exciting Updates for Telegraph
We’re officially breaking ground this year! Finally, in the last stage of the permitting process, we expect to break ground this summer. Stay tuned!
After acquiring an adjacent piece of land, the project doubled in size. Telegraph Townhomes is now expected to house up to 54 local families!
Lowe’s Women Build Day
Annually, Lowe’s Home Improvement store provides a $5,000 grant to Habitat for Humanity affiliates across the U.S. This year, we’ll be using the Lowe’s grant to get Telegraph Townhomes one step closer to breaking ground, and to finish up our Wetlands Mitigation project, which we started in February.
Help out a Whatcom County neighbor on their path to homeownership! Join us on Women Build Day, May 5th from 9 am to 4 pm, at 1050 Telegraph Road to be a part of this powerful movement.
Lunch, tools, and instructions will be provided.
No construction skills! Work available for all skill levels. Many, many hands will be needed to make Telegraph Townhomes a reality.
