Women Build

Our Women Build will return in 2023!

 

What is a Women Build?

Women Build is a national initiative to engage women in the effort to provide safe and decent homes for families in need of affordable housing.  

 

Why is it important?

The Women Build program was established in 1991 to encourage the involvement of women in the construction of Habitat homes. By recruiting, educating, and inspiring women to build, they can transform lives in their communities.  Women Build is about empowering women to learn advocacy, fundraising, and construction skills on an inclusive job site while empowering other women and their children through affordable homeownership. All are welcome, including men! No construction experience is needed, just a willingness to learn!
