She Builds: Women Rebuilding Communities

She Builds Logo

On October 1, Rebuilding Together NYC is launching a new initiative, She Builds, focused on empowering the women in our communities. With the help of Charter Communications, HGTV, Redtop Architects, and Gilbane Building Company volunteers, Rebuilding Together NYC will provide critical repairs and renovation to Sarah Powell Huntington House (SPHH), a transitional housing facility that reunites formerly incarcerated women with their children. SPHH is home to 37 mothers, 18 who live in singles units and are awaiting the return of their children and 19 whose children are in their care.

With your help, we can also remediate a massive mold infestation in the Sarah Powell Huntington House basement. The mold, a result of flooding during Hurricane Sandy, is a major health threat to the women, children, and employees at SPHH. Almost four years since Hurricane Sandy, the mold continues to grow creating a significant safety concern and eliminating much needed storage.

Your support can help make this a safe and healthy facility for its families and staff. Click here to donate today.
