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.
