Why Women Build?
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
