What is Women Build?
Women Build is Habitat’s volunteer program for women who want to learn construction skills and make a difference by building homes and communities.
Women Build projects are regularly held by Habitat affiliates across the United States, and by Habitat organizations around the world. Women at these builds have furthered Habitat’s home-building mission by helping to construct more than 1,900 houses.
Never built anything before? Don’t worry! Many women come to build with no construction skills at all and still make a difference. Other women will use their skills, talents and contacts to help with fundraising, event planning, organizing volunteers, writing press releases and making phone calls. Women Build is much more than a simple home construction project. Women Build brings individuals and groups of women together to create something significant, and enjoy a sense of community and personal accomplishment.

Lowe's Women Build Clinics:
As the underwriter of Habitat's Women Build® program since 2004, Lowe's has brought women from all walks of life together to support the nationwide initiative that challenges women to devote at least one day to help eliminate poverty housing. Lowe's how-to clinics have put hammers in the hands of thousands of women, teaching them construction skills and empowering them to be part of the solution by building homes with partner families. Held in February - March.
