Thank You 2021 Women Build Sponsors

There are many ways to get involved!


Lead a Team! Team Captains needed to organize a group of up to 5 women on the build site for at least 1 day, fundraise a minimum of $500/team & create lasting change in our community! Ample fundraising support, resources & incentives are provided making it fun & easy.

Join a team! Sign up and pick the day you would like to build on site! There will be multiple days available to choose from.

Provide hospitality for a build day! Schedule a day to bring lunch, drinks or snacks for a build team and help fuel builders and keep construction going.

Help fund raise! You can join us at one of our Women Build events, donate to support a team or donate directly to Women Build!

Whether you volunteer as a team or individual you’ll work under the guidance of construction professionals, and alongside other volunteers and future Habitat homeowners. No experience is necessary and Women Build is open to people of all genders and ages 16+.

With Women Build you can learn new skills while helping to build a safe, stable home for a family; this is such a rewarding experience for all involved, and truly improves the community that we share. Together we can empower women, this community and future generations by making homeownership a reality for hard-working, low-income families!
