Women Build Strength, Stability, and Self-Reliance.

What is Women Build?
Since 1991, Women Build has brought women and their allies together to raise funds, recruit their friends and build homes side-by-side with women in need of affordable housing.  

This build will begin with a kickoff event that will take place March 10th and 11th at the site of our future Pasadena ReStore (note location change due to weather forecast).

Women Build Events
Women Build is a terrific way to involve your friends and family of all ages in crucial work with a lasting impact. Women helping women sends a positive and powerful message. You can also come alone, and make new friends. The atmosphere is collaborative and friendly. No experience necessary to volunteer.

Habitat for Humanity’s top priority is the health and safety of our staff, volunteers, partners and the people we serve. We are following all local COVID-19 guidelines and safety protocols.

The Impact of Housing on Women

In LA County, 60% of renters cannot afford where they live, the wage gap that exists between men and women makes it more difficult for women to access affordable housing. The result is an increasing number of women living in substandard, unsafe and unaffordable conditions. The need for affordable housing has increased due to COVID-19’s effect on wage loss and unemployment. 

Recent years have taught us a home is more than just a shelter. It’s a safety net, our prescription for health, and it’s the foundation for the futures we build. At San Gabriel Valley Habitat for Humanity, Women Build has grown to become a signature event attended by hundreds of women from all backgrounds (and their allies– coming together to build homes, communities and hope. To date, this event has helped house families in Glendale, Pasadena, Monterey Park, Baldwin Park, Monrovia and throughout the San Gabriel Valley through volunteering, donations, and advocacy

As the Women Build movement continues to grow, our hope is to empower more womeninspire change in housing, and raise funds to help more families.
