Women Build 2014

Bowie/Green Meet the Green-Bowie Family

Dyron and Melanie have been one of the hardest working families in our program.  They helped build the Lake Arrowhead house and Melanie was a big part of our “Women who Build Gala”.  We are eager for the day we can hand them the keys to their new home.


Brenda Wiberg Memorial Women Build

Brenda A. Wiberg, wife of Carl Wiberg, Sr., a local Coldwell Banker Elite agent, and past member of the GFHFH Board of Directors, passed away in May of 2008. She worked at Coldwell Banker Elite’s Stafford office and was described as “its heart and soul.”  The Wiberg family had asked that contributions be given to Habitat for Humanity in remembrance of Brenda and the first Women Build for Habitat has thus been named in her honor. We’d like to thank the Wiberg family for their loving memorial towards the fulfillment of the dream of home ownership for the Green-Bowie family.

Recently some of Brenda’s coworkers were reminiscing about Brenda and the impact she had on their lives and the lives of so many others in the community, this is what they said:

“I worked with Brenda and Carl at Coldwell Banker Elite. Brenda was well known and loved in the community so I’m glad we will have lots of support for the build in her name!!”

“When I read it was being named after Brenda Wiberg, I was moved to tears. I have already fielded a call from another former CBE agent who would like to become involved because of her love for the Wiberg family.”

“I think this is wonderful! To be able to honor a woman who was so well liked in the community..”

“What a lovely and pertinent way to remember her”

We invite you join us in making the dream of home ownership a reality for the Bowie-Green family. If your business would like to sponsor the 1st Women Build, email womenbuild@fredhab.org
