2016 June – July
The Habitat for Humanity Women Build program promotes the involvement of women in fundraising and constructing Habitat homes. Women Build takes place in the summer and works with affiliates to nurture, recruit, and train women to build and maintain simple, decent, healthy, and affordable homes.
While our mission is to provide homes for hardworking, low-income families, Women Build specifically focuses on providing houses for women and their families. Studies show that children who grow up in safe, clean homes with parents who are homeowners are more likely to be successful. By providing a home for women and their children, we hope to eliminate future generations of poverty for the family.
