Women Build


Habitat for Humanity’s Women Build volunteers have been picking up hammers 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 is March 1 - 10, 2019 and Women Builds and Women Build activities aimed at empowering women are presented all year.

Women Build Media Day is March 1, 2019 and will be held at 639 Jefferson Avenue, Township of Washington. 

The 2019 Women Build Week aligns with International Women's Day and the 2019 week will feature international participation with events taking place in multiple countries.
