The Habitat for Humanity Women Build program empowers women age 16 and older to have a lasting impact in their communities by partnering with us to build affordable housing for families in need of shelter.
Since the program was founded in 1991, thousands of volunteers and homeowners around the world have gained valuable skills and confidence to pound nails, raise walls, shingle roofs and so much more. Every spring, Habitat for Humanity celebrates National Women Build Week during the week leading up to Mother’s Day.
Locally, the Our Towns’ Women Build crew has funded and built 8 homes since 1998. Our building crew is growing … and we invite you to join us, as we plan to build our 9th home in the Fall of 2018.
We need your help, not just to frame the walls, but also to raise the funds needed to buy nails, lumber, wiring and everything else it takes to build a home!
