This is a week-long event where we invite women of all skills to devote at least one day to help families build strength, stability and independence through housing. The week is meant to spotlight the home-ownership challenges faced by women.

Frequently asked questions

Are men allowed?

Yes, men are welcome. In fact, the future homeowner or part of the training staff may be men. Women Build provides a place for women to learn the skills needed to build a home, but that does not exclude men from participating.

How does Habitat empower women?

Our goal with Women Build is to empower women to help families build strength, stability and independence. We at Habitat have the ability to provide opportunities for hands-on learning, and given these tools, women can succeed in changing their communities.

Do you need help in other ways besides volunteering on the house itself?

YES! We are looking for a women-build committee to make sure NWBW goes off without hitch! If you are interested, please contact Lea Anne at lea@habitatpeoria.org
