Women Build is not about excluding men; it’s about including women so they can learn construction skills on a more inclusive build site.
Women Build is a Habitat for Humanity International program supported by Lowe’s that encourages women to make a difference by building homes and communities. The program seeks to encourage women volunteers to further the home-building mission of Habitat for Humanity. Women Build houses are built with volunteer women leaders at least 75% women construction volunteers.
Women of all ages (16 and older) are encouraged to volunteer with Habitat Newburgh.
Women Build Week
National Women Build Week is Habitat’s signature Women Build event in the United States. Held each year during the week leading up to Mother’s Day, the week-long event challenges women to devote at least one day to helping eliminate poverty housing. National Women Build Week began in 2007 and was developed through partnership between Habitat and LOWE’s, the underwriter of the Women Build program. Each year, thousands of volunteers participate at more than 200 Habitat work sites, helping build houses and raise awareness for our mission.
