Circle of Women Spotlight – Stephanie Sale – Blog 3 (November 13, 2013)

The Circle of Women build is made possible by many dedicated volunteers. Some women volunteer once or twice but others have been involved for numerous years. One of these committed volunteers is Stephanie Sale. Stephanie has been involved with the Circle of Women builds for four years and has worked on three homes.

Stephanie has extraordinarily fond memories on the construction site. For Stephanie, helping a family’s dream come to fruition is a pleasure that is dear to her heart. She described her construction experiences: “Early morning fresh air, unpredictable weather forecasts, laughter, new skills to master – it’s all of this and more.” She added that she prefers to assist with the wall raising and siding tasks of the construction process. Other members of Circle of Women choose to paint inside or outside, tile, shingle or plant.

When thinking about her experiences with Habitat for Humanity, Stephanie recalled one heartfelt moment. One year, she handed the front door key of the newly built Circle of Women home to its proud owner. She thoughtfully reminisced, “Her face, her smile, her tears are with me still. I don’t think life gets too much better than that.”

Circle of Women has been quite a rewarding experience for Mrs. Sale. The group of women that convene every year to ensure that a family has a safe, new home can be thought of as a sisterhood. This collaboration has continued to grow thanks to the efforts of participants that invite more friends year after year.

Making Progress (November 7, 2013)

All the rain we’ve had recently has slowed construction down.  But we’re still making progress!
