BUILD has one job - to pour into the cup of the Leaders that Build our Communities each and every day.

Our Focuses Include
Monthly Community Dinners
Quarterly Initiatives & Event
Mental Health & Wellness Resources
Community Building Workshops

Growing up, our mothers would have been the perfect candidate for BUILD's services. They constantly take on the woes of everyone from their children, to even their husbands. But, who does mom go to with her woes?

This phenomena is often represented with the phrase "Check on your strong friends." The reality is, we have Community Champions who give their all every single day and we're often missing the opportunities to refill their cups. Their vessels.

BUILD aims to provide brave spaces for these Leaders to convene, to have authentic conversations, to improve their mental wellness, and to BUILD themselves back up when their Life's work can often go thankless in the world we live in today.
