Women Build


Habitat for Humanity’s Women Build volunteers have been picking up hammer and helping change lives for more than 25 years.

Habitat’s Women Build volunteers come together from all walks of life to build stronger, safer communities.  Women and children make up the majority of people populating Habitat neighborhoods, as they are the most likely to be affected by poor living conditions.  Women Build events provide the opportunity for women to take a proactive step in serving their communities.

Participating in Women Build projects

Women Build opportunities are available across the U.S., and any woman who wants to learn how to build a home is invited to join us; no experience is necessary.  Volunteers work under the guidance of construction professionals and alongside other volunteers and future Habitat homeowners.

National Women Build Week

This annual event which was created in partnership with Lowe’s and is held during the week leading up to Mother’s Day, is meant to spotlight the homeownership challenges faced by women.
