McKee Homes Sponsors Habitat for Humanity Women Build

Community involvement is important to McKee Homes, particularly when it involves new home construction. In recognition of International Women’s Day on March 8th, McKee Homes sponsored and volunteered in the Fayetteville NC Area Habitat for Humanity (FAHFH)  annual Women Build event.

Building Awareness

Habitat for Humanity’s (HFHI) Women Build program “focuses on building and improving homes and raising awareness of affordable housing issues facing women and their families”. Women Build events accomplish this by teaching women new home building skills. These skills can

better enable women to facilitate and complete construction repairs and projects. This year Team McKee Homes volunteered with an all women crew working on the interior of an HFHI new home. Working alongside the homeowner and other participants, Team McKee volunteers learned to install baseboards, door trim, and window trim.

One of Team McKee’s volunteers, Monica Cortes, is a builder with McKee Homes. Her years of experience in new home construction gave Team McKee unique insight on the project. Other McKee Homes volunteers had never installed trim and were eager to learn about cutting, fitting, and nailing trim properly. Additionally, the visit to a new home construction site exited McKee Homes volunteers, as some have worked in the new home construction industry for years but don’t often visit a job site.

Neighborhood Revitalization

Currently, FAHFH is working on a neighborhood revitalization effort just down the street from McKee Homes’ corporate headquarters in downtown Fayetteville, NC. This presented a special opportunity for McKee Homes to work on a project that impacts its own “neighborhood”. Neighborhood revitalization can have a transformative effect that helps improve the quality of life for everyone in an area.  These HFHI efforts provide a service not only for a neighborhood, but for a city at large.

McKee Homes support and shares HFHI’s vision of empowering women and building strong communities. HFHI hosts WomenBuild events all around the country, to include Raleigh, Moore County, and Wilmington, NC.
