What is “WOMEN BUILD”?

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

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. 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.

Funds raised through Women Build directly support the variety of Women Build projects including 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.
