about speaking of sweat equity

The Golden Crescent Habitat for Humanity Speaking of Sweat Equity Series pays homage to the fact that every Habitat family partner invests 300 hours of “sweat equity” in lieu of the cash down payment a typical homeowner pays when purchasing a home. Featured speakers address how they invest their own forms of sweat equity to overcome personal and professional challenges.

Proceeds from the event will be used to help build simple, affordable homes for local families in need. Since 2012, the annual Speaking of Sweat Equity event has raised enough funds to help build six homes.
