Hands-on Training and Education: Build With Strength 2.0, Santa Fe, New Mexico

Event Description:

Build with Strength is partnering with Habitat for Humanity International and the Insulating Concrete Forms Manufacturers Association to fortify decent, affordable and sustainable housing across the U.S. This initiative will help to provide incredibly strong and sustainable homes for dozens of Habitat Partner Families over the course of several years.
