Employees celebrate Mother’s Day at Women Build

American Transmission Co. sponsored a team during National Women Build Week to help Habitat for Humanity of Waukesha County build affordable housing to support the community.

On Saturday, May 11, nine employee volunteers, including two mother and daughter teams who volunteered together in celebration of Mother’s Day, helped another mother build her new home.

Habitat is building the home for single mom Dawn, her daughter Courtney, who is in college and the National Guard, and her 9-year-old daughter Myah, who has severe special needs. The home is the first ranch-style home Waukesha’s Habitat has built, and will include special accommodations for Myah such as wider doorways for her wheelchair and a lift to help her use the bathtub safely.

The ATC team built and raised three exterior walls for the project. The project will continue throughout the summer and fall. It is expected that Dawn and her family will be able to move in before the end of the year.
