What is Women Build?
Through Women Build events, women from all walks of life are working together to build Habitat for Humanity homes across the United States. Women Build crews typically build more than 200 Habitat for Humanity homes a year and positively impacting the future by making homeownership a present reality for families. More than 60 percent of Habitat for Humanity’s houses are built along with women heads of household. These women are often dependent upon the goodwill of neighbors, friends and relatives for even minor repairs. By receiving training as part of the build, they are better equipped to maintain their homes and, consequently, are more confident in their ability to cope with day-to-day situations.
Women Build challenges women to actively address the problem of substandard housing and to be part of the solution. Women crews have already built more than 1,500 Habitat for Humanity houses within the United States, and in dozens of other countries. Women Build projects provide an environment in which women can feel comfortable learning skills they might not otherwise have the opportunity to learn. We’re excited to be partners with you in the effort to involve more women in the construction of Habitat for Humanity houses and in so doing move children and parents out of substandard housing and into homes where they can thrive.
