What is 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.
This past May, over 300 women came work together through Women Build to raise funds and build homes with Habitat for Humanity of Greater Sacramento. Commencing on May 1st with a special Women Build kick-off rally followed by a month-long build, Women Build volunteers helped on 8 different Habitat projects including critical roof repairs for low-income homeowners, new home builds for hardworking low-income families, a rehab project for a hardworking single mom and her two kids, Veteran repair projects for senior Veterans in need of critical repairs to stay in their homes and age with dignity, playhouse builds for Habitat projects, and an incredible community impact project at a local high-need elementary school where all 760 children are on free or subsidized lunch and all 12 children of our Avenues project will eventually attend. Overall, this year’s Women Build helped impact 11 families and homeowners in our community, 3 Veterans, and over 760 children.
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.
Information for next year’s 2019 Women Build will come out in the Fall of 2018.
