Women Unite. Women Give. Women Build.

Women Build Update

In accordance with CDC recommendations to limit gatherings to less than 10 people, we are postponing Women Build, originally scheduled for May 1-2, 2020, until later this year. Even though we are delaying the build event, there’s a lot of good you can continue to do for Women Build and the overall cause of affordable housing! We invite you to fundraise, register yourself/add team members or nominate a woman for this year’s Spirit of Women Build Award! We will provide updates by e-mail to all our registered participants and also post regular updates on our website and social media channels.

Why Women Build?

THE CRISIS

In LA County where 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.

Together, we can change this!

HOW WOMEN BUILD IS TACKLING THE HOUSING CRISIS

Our annual Women Build movement is changing the housing crisis for women and their families. Every year, our Women Build participants put their muscles where their mouths are to build homes and communities.

YOU CAN GET INVOLVED, TOO

Do you want to learn how to build and construct a home? You’re invited! No experience? You’re invited! Participants work under the guidance of our construction professionals, and alongside other Women Builders and future Habitat women homeowners.

More than just our annual fundraiser and a big volunteer event, Women Build creates space for participants to connect, give, build—and change our world!

BRING YOUR FRIENDS AND MAKE NEW ONES, TOO.

Women Build is a movement that always has room for more! Invite your sisters, daughters, mom, other family members and friends to join you. Whether you organize a team, or come alone, you’ll make new friends and a life-long impact

Do you know an AMAZING woman committed to uniting communities; giving of her time, talent, or treasure to fight for advancements in social justice and building up other women? Nominate her for the Spirit of Women Build Award!
