Julia Brauchle started at Twin Cities Habitat as an AmeriCorps member in 2014. She's now the Education and Group Engagement Associate, working with TCHFH Women Build and youth engagement programs. Julia graduated from The University of Edinburgh in Edinburg, Scotland with a degree in Spanish and Business. While in school, she was an active member of a volunteer and fundraising club which sparked her interest in the non-profit sector. Now that she's back in Minnesota, she enjoys biking and running around the cities, sampling the area's abundant taco eateries, and snuggling with her cat.
Women Build is a month into the 2017 season and going full steam ahead! Since June 5th, all-female teams have been crushing it daily at the Women Build site in North Minneapolis. So far, 19 Team Leaders have recruited women crews and fundraised to support their build days.
State Farm is a consistent sponsor of Habitat for Humanity’s youth programs, regularly supporting Campus Chapters and engaging youth in disaster rebuilding and recovery efforts. This year, Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity (TCHFH) was awarded a $2,000 matching grant and a $1,000 capacity building grant to expand our youth programs. This enabled TCHFH to engage over 400 youth in Hands-On Building workshops and exceeded the $2,000 fundraising goal by raising $2,830!
