What is Women Build?

Women Build is Habitat for Humanity’s program for women who want to learn construction skills and build homes and communities. This program brings together women from all walks of life to address the housing crisis facing millions of women and children worldwide. No experience is necessary!

If you would like to work alongside other women volunteers to rebuild homes for deserving families, please join us on May 9th for a special Women Build event.


This year we will be working at 262 Lowell St, which we acquired at Christmas. This 105 year old building is currently being demo'd to the studs while we evaluate the structure and decide if we are going to rebuild or tear it down and build new.  All volunteers receive safety training and equipment, are led by experienced crew leaders, and work in small groups for an optimal experience. Morning coffee and bagels and lunch are provided.
  • The Women Build program empowers women to build Habitat for Humanity homes, enabling them to positively impact the lives of children by making homeownership a present reality for families.
  • Women Build is not about excluding men; it’s about including women!
  • Women are often intimidated on a “mixed” construction site; but in the supportive environment of a Women Build site, they quickly learn construction skills.
  • By planning projects where the majority of volunteers are women, Women Build involves more women in Habitat’s construction efforts, thereby increasing the number of houses Habitat can build.

We hope you can join us!
