Women Build is a Habitat for Humanity program that empowers and engages women in learning construction skills, building homes, and positively impacting communities. This program brings together women from all walks of life and their many abilities – not just swinging a hammer! Each year, there is a National Women Build Week during the week leading up to Mother’s Day filled with Women Build Days and other activities.
Women on Wednesdays- WOW!
Our all women crew had such a great experience on the Women Build house that they have decided to continue volunteering together to build stability, strength and self-reliance through home ownership. New volunteers are welcome and no prior construction skills are needed. If you’re willing to learn and looking for camaraderie, this could be a great opportunity for you to make a difference. WOW will work on new home ownership projects – both new construction and rehabs – and will lend their time to neighborhood revitalization projects.
If you are a new volunteer, you can get started by registering online and attending one of our monthly orientation sessions.
For more information or to sign up for WOW notices, contact Rhodana Fields, Neighborhood Revitalization Manager.
National Women Build Week
National Women Build Week is a nationwide initiative in partnership with Lowe’s that supports Habitat for Humanity’s international program, Women Build. Through National Women Build Week, volunteers across the country gain knowledge and skills in home construction, and are able to build up their communities alongside future Habitat homeowners to empower more women and girls to achieve independence and equality.
