Remembering Rosalynn Carter & Honoring Her Tremendous Legacy

This week we were deeply saddened when we learned that Rosalynn Carter has died. Mrs. Carter was truly a  compassionate and committed advocate for families everywhere.

"We feel a great loss today, but we are comforted by the knowledge that Mrs. Carter’s legacy will live on through the people she touched and the example she set for servant leadership," said Habitat for Humanity International CEO, Jonathan Reckford in an email.

While former President Jimmy Carter is often the first person people think of when they think of Habitat, Reckford pointed out that Mrs. Carter also held the organization close to her heart and was passionate about the people and communities we serve.

"She worked hard, often in difficult conditions, to make life better for families around the world. She believed deeply in our mission and many times became very emotional when she talked about the families with whom [she and President Carter] had worked. Like other Habitat volunteers, she would often say that she and President Carter got so much more out of helping families build their homes than they gave. She graciously shared her husband and her life with the world because she was so committed to helping others," said Reckford.

Please join us in celebrating her positive spirit and remembering her fierce determination to improve housing conditions around the world.

Women Build Initiative Builds Joy, Community, and Playhouses

Eleven women chose to spend a Saturday making a significant difference in the lives of two local families in SLO County. These compassionate volunteers built two playhouses, providing creative and fun spaces for children to call their own. This project marked the revival of the Women Build initiative in the area, showcasing the power of women joining together to enact positive change.


Michelle McCovey-Good, T & S Structural President, said, “It was super inspiring to see women of all backgrounds and generations come together with their skills and creativity to put together the playhouses. I would definitely encourage other businesses to sponsor a playhouse build. The theme of “everyone deserves to play” is a unique concept that we frequently overlook. It was great to celebrate the joy that the playhouse will bring to a local child.”


If you're inspired by this project and want to get involved in future Women Build initiatives, learn more by visiting our website or contact Dawn Smith at (805) 316-1192.

Your support will make a meaningful difference in SLO County while you develop skills and meet new friends.
