Norfleet will be amongst other women empowerment organizations such as: The WNBA Atlanta Dream (The only all-female ownership group in Atlanta professional sports), Atlanta Women Realtors (A network of successful realtors, advancing women as professionals and leaders in business), 100 Female Entrepreneurs (A fundamental organization for millennial and emerging women in business),Single Wives Club (An organization that educates, empowers, and inspires single ladies to become better women before becoming wives) and many more.

The “Women Build” is an annual project that empowers women to build homes and enable them to positively impact the lives of families by making home ownership a reality.

Proudly Sponsored by African Pride, this four day build challenges all-women volunteer teams to come together to actively work to build a home for LaTonya Flugence and her family.

To register and make a contribution, please visit schabitat.org/womenbuild.

LaTonya Flugence

Southern Crescent Habitat’s “Women Build”  is a safe haven for women to practice and excel, no matter what their skill levels. The program nurtures, recruits and train women to build and maintain simple, decent, healthy and affordable homes in their community.

This year’s build is dedicated to LaTonya Flugence. Ms. Flugence is a working mother of two sons, Kavious, 20 years of age and Kyle, 17 years of age. She has volunteered at her local Habitat Restore and has successfully completed her sweat equity and is ready to move into her new home.

“I am thankful for Southern Crescent Habitat For Humanity and to the woman that are coming together to help build, support, and donate their time to invest in me,” says Flugence.

SCHFH believes that everyone deserves a decent place to live. The affiliate has created opportunities for hard working people to own an attractive and affordable home.

To qualify they must have a stable job with a 2-year tenure, spend more than 1/3 of their monthly income on rental housing, meet income requirements and invest 300 hours in sweat equity (building homes) and home ownership (financial and home maintenance) education. Our organization has helped over 300 families in South Atlanta, and would like to invite you to be apart of our mission to double that by 2020.

The “Women Build” volunteer dates are April 2nd, 5th, 7th and 9th and can accommodate 40 volunteers per day. We are only able to hold volunteer dates with volunteer donation or sponsorship commitment.

If your organization would like to participate in the “Women Build”, please register at http://www.schabitat.org/upcoming-events/women-build-2016/ and get social by following our Twitter/Facebook/Instagram pages @SCHabitatfh and hashtag #SCHWomenBuild and #BuildWithSCHabitat.

Special Thanks to Tia Norfleet and the host of women empowerment organizations.

  1. I would love to see “Black” Woman Race car drivers! Auto racing is not an equal opportunity sport, Nore is it a place to vent your anger of the past! Leave the “Black-Ness out of this equation, You certainly will reach your goal at a much faster paste! Danica Patrick , certainly knows it, You will never hear “Black-White” Rhetoric come from her. She knows That Racing is a business, and so should you. Do not expect for any black help, Blacks are too locked up in Cell-phones, Basket Ball and Drugs! I do hope you know how to build what you race, Because this tallant is not given away free!

  2. Most female drivers have started their careers in various open-wheel racing leagues, like the IndyCar Series (Danica Patrick, Janet Guthrie), as well as ARCA (Patrick, Erin Crocker, Tina Gordon). Most female drivers have also raced in either the NASCAR Weekly Racing Series or the Drive for Diversity program.
