Register to be part of our next Women Build
(available dates below under “how to participate”!)

March 2022 – 500 Women, 1 BIG GOAL

Women Build brings together women in our community from all backgrounds, ages, skill sets and industries to make a difference and help Habitat for Humanity of Greater Sacramento build and repair greatly needed affordable housing in our community. Working side-by-side with hundreds of women, participants have the opportunity to network, learn valuable new skills on build sites and help build a stronger community.

Check out our 2022 Women Build participation packet here.

What is “WOMEN BUILD”?

At Habitat for Humanity of Greater Sacramento, we believe that strong women build strong communities.

Every year, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Sacramento’s Women Build brings together hundreds of women from all walks of life to address the housing and community crisis affecting many families in Sacramento and Yolo County. Women Build promotes empowerment, solidarity, learning, and pride in our community.

How to participate

Participants in Women Build raise the funds and provide the volunteer muscle needed to build. Registration includes a build day, t-shirt, lunch, a ticket to the Women Build kick-off party, and all materials, equipment, and tools associated with your build day.

Participants can register as an individual or as a group to participate. Registration is $250 per participant and can be covered through fundraising (see fundraising resources below) or through group company sponsorships.

Thanks to everyone who joined us for our Virtual Women Build in 2020 as we worked to KEEP BUILDING amidst unique conditions due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We look forward to getting back on the job site for our next Women Build!
