Join 30 women who will commit a FULL DAY of volunteering on Wednesday, January 17, 2024 from 8:30 am - 4:30 pm to help Habitat for Humanity move one step closer to making the Esperanza Place project a reality.
This event provides an opportunity for women to take a proactive step in serving their communities. Any woman who wants to learn how to build or repair a home is invited to join. No experience is necessary. Volunteers work under the guidance of construction professionals, alongside other volunteers and future Habitat homeowners.
Whether you are learning new skills or simply adding a few to your tool belt, this is a rewarding experience for all involved, and it improves the community that you share. This is a terrific way to participate in crucial work with a lasting impact. Women helping women sends a positive and powerful message. The atmosphere is collaborative and friendly.
The Project - Esperanza Place:
You might spot it as your BART train slows down for a stop at the Pleasant Hill station. Or hear the staccato of hammers or the hum of a circular saw during your midmorning run along the Iron Horse Trail. They’re the sights and sounds of dreams in the making.
What started as a vacant lot in the heart of Walnut Creek is evolving into Esperanza Place, a neighborhood of 42 affordable homes. With the help of a community of volunteers and donors – and the thousands of hours being put in by future homeowners – walls and rooftops are rising from sturdy foundations on which 42 families will build new beginnings.
The effort is true to its name, Esperanza Place. Esperanza is Spanish for hope, and hope is what we’re building at the end of the day. That’s because while we build walls and hang doors, we build all the things that come along with owning a home to call your own. Positive outcomes in health, financial wellness, academic achievement, and generational wealth. Security and room to thrive. A stable, affordable mortgage that leaves space to grow, save, invest, build. A community to plant roots in. A parent’s peace of mind and a child’s quiet place to study.
