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.

Are you ready to build with us?
