Women Build

The mission of Habitat’s Women Build program is to enable U.S. and international affiliates to recruit, educate and nurture women to build—and advocate for—simple, decent and affordable houses in their communities.

In achieving this, Women Build brings together women from all walks of life to address the housing crisis facing millions of women and children worldwide. Since becoming an Habitat for Humanity International program in 1998, Women Build projects, fundraising campaigns and advocacy efforts have taken place in more than 30 countries.

The Women Build program helps Habitat for Humanity build more homes by recruiting women and girls. Women represent a tremendous volunteer pool. Women Build houses provide an opportunity for women to learn construction skills while working on construction crews composed predominantly of women.

In Lawrence, the Women Build program has sponsored five homes on their own and co-sponsored one home with Building on Faith.
