Why Women Build?

Habitat’s Women Build brings together women from all walks of life – professionals, students, faith groups, community leaders, book clubs, marathoners, friends, neighbors, mothers and daughters – to address the housing crisis facing millions of women and children worldwide.

Nationally, more than 60% of Habitat for Humanity’s projects are home to partner families with women heads of household. Due to skills they learn while building their Habitat home, these women are better equipped to maintain their homes and, consequently, more confident in their ability to cope with day-to-day situations.

Women Build is a national program with Habitat for Humanity International that empowers women to help families build strength, stability, and self-reliance through shelter.  Habitat for Humanity’s 10th annual National Women Build Week, from May 6-14, invites women to get involved — devoting at least one day to help build decent and affordable housing in their local communities.
