Together, We’ll Break The Bias

Since 1991, Women Build has been breaking biases to empower women in creating a gender-equal world that is diverse, equitable and inclusive.

Our neighborhoods are comprised mainly of women and children, and they are also the populations most likely to be affected by poor living conditions. With the need for safe and stable housing greater than it has ever been, Women Build brings women together to address our community’s affordable housing crisis by providing the tools, skills and opportunity to make an impact.

No Experience Necessary

No experience is necessary to build with Women Build. Volunteers work under the guidance of construction professionals alongside other volunteers and future Habitat homeowners. Whether you are learning new skills or simply adding a few to your tool belt, this is a rewarding experience for all involved and improves the community that you share.
