What is Women Build?
Since 1991, Women Build volunteers from all walks of life have come together to build stronger, safer communities. Women Build events provide the opportunity for women to take a proactive step in serving their communities.
Women Build opportunities are available across the U.S., and anyone who wants to learn how to build and construct a home is invited to join us. No experience is necessary. Volunteers work under the guidance of construction professionals, and also alongside other volunteers and future Habitat homeowners. Whether you are learning new skills or simply adding a few to your tool belt, this is a rewarding experience for all involved, and improves the community around us.
Women Build is also a terrific way to involve your friends and family of all ages and genders in crucial work with a lasting impact. Women helping women sends a positive and powerful message. Our goal with Women Build is to empower women to help families build strength, stability and independence.
