Eight months in the making… Marilyn DeBlaw is seeing the fruits of her labor. On Saturday, May 3, 2014, Marilyn and over 25 friends, family and women volunteers set out on a journey that will change the course of her and her daughters’ lives. “There’s nothing I wouldn’t do for my children,” she said in a letter to Houston Habitat; asking for the chance to earn a home in the program. Having a home of her own she can count on will help stabilize the health and well-being for her and her daughters. A 15-year veteran school bus driver for Houston ISD and Galena Park ISD, Marilyn enjoys being a role model and mentor for the children she sees every day on her route. This week, the Women Build home will be dedicated to the DeBlaw Partner Family in celebration of her hard work and perseverance.

Several teams participated in the 2014 Women Build to make this possible. Their time, donations and volunteer efforts were invaluable in making this home affordable for the DeBlaw family. Without the help of these fearless women, it would not have been possible:
Vaco Resources Women Build Team
H-E-B Women Build Team
Sherwin Williams Paint Company (Houston District Womens Group)
Women Working Wonders Women Build Team
Hoover Slovacek Women Build team
GE Women Volunteers
We give them our heartfelt appreciation for a job well done!
The next Houston Habitat Women Build is scheduled for April 30th – May 9th, 2015.
