Habitat for Humanity — North Central Georgia (Habitat-NCG) has officially announced the kickoff of its 2023 Women Build, through which women from all over the state will help raise funds to build a house for a family in need in Dawson, Forsyth, Cherokee or North Fulton. 

According to a press release by the organization, each year women participating in the project help to raise $140,000 to build a habitat home for a family in the four-county area that Habitat-NCG serves. 

“Our goal is to raise $140,000 to build an entire house from the ground up for a family in North Central Georgia,” club president Serlin Bakotic said in the release. “It is done mostly through individual giving and corporate partnerships which are women-owned or led or have a focus on empowering women, through personal fundraising and giving, through collaborative fundraising and through faith and civic partnerships in the community.” 

The group is made up of women from all of the Metro Atlanta and North Central Georgia business and civic community, and each year the project provides an opportunity for them to develop and build their skills through the fundraiser and build. 

The group holds mostly meetings which feature speakers and fundraising planning. On Feb. 11, the group will hold its first fundraiser of the year with a celebrity chef dinner presented by Chef Tracey Bloom.
