Women Build is a movement that unites and empowers women to collectively make an impact on affordable housing in the communities where we work and live!

Launching on Mother’s Day weekend and continuing through October, we will host a special series of build days celebrating the strength of women. This is a truly unique opportunity to spend a day, hands on, helping to build a Habitat home while promoting positive, women-led impact. 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.

Together with individuals and companies, we are looking to raise $20,000 for our Freeport and South Portland builds.

While Women Build is focused on the inclusion of women in the work of building homes, the initiative does not exclude volunteers of any gender or gender identity nor does it promote discrimination of any kind.
