Women Build E-Newsletter, March, 2015
Introducing Judith and her children - 2015 Habitat Partner Family - sponsored by Women Build

With a positive, smiling face and a great sense of humour, Judith is humble, giving, and known within her community as someone who always goes the extra mile for her family. A mother of four (Trisha, Noel, Tavari, & Caleb),  Judith is originally from Jamaica and came to Canada in 2006 to start a new life with her family.

“I love Winnipeg– if I could just change the weather a little bit, I would. The winter is cold, but you’re going to dress for it, so once you embrace it, you tolerate it. People always say – move to Toronto! But I look at what I can give my children here. I see Winnipeg as more of a family city; when I leave my kids and go to work - coming back, I know they’re ok.”

The Garden Party Fashion Show will take place at the Delta Winnipeg on Sunday, April 19, 2015.
