What is “WOMEN BUILD”?
At Habitat for Humanity of Greater Sacramento, we believe that women build great things. Habitat for Humanity of Greater Sacramento’s Women Build brings together women from all walks of life to address the housing crisis affecting many families in Sacramento and Yolo County. Providing a unique opportunity to swing hammers and fundraise, Women Build promotes empowerment, solidarity, learning, and pride in our community. It encourages women (and men!) to give back and help Habitat make a difference in the lives of local families.

About Women Build
Every woman has the power to build a stronger community
Women Build is an annual project that recruits and empowers women of all different ages, backgrounds, and industries to come together to build homes and make a powerful and visible impact on our local community through housing.
Women Build is a truly unique and exciting opportunity for women in our community to come together, no matter what their skill levels, and roll up their sleeves to promote positive, women-led impact.
Funds raised through Women Build directly support building new homes for low-income families in Sacramento and Yolo County, as well as community impact projects and rehabilitation and preservation efforts for our community’s vulnerable elderly and Veteran homeowners.
