What is Women Build?
Our Women Build events provide the opportunity for women to take a proactive step in serving their communities.
Register today for our May 6th, 10th or 12th build!
Women Build opportunities are available across the U.S., and any woman who wants to learn how to build and construct a home is invited to join us. No experience is necessary. Volunteers work under the guidance of construction professionals, and also alongside other volunteers and future Habitat homeowners. Whether you are learning new skills or simply adding a few to your tool belt, this is a rewarding experience for all involved, and improves the community that you share.
Women Build is also 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.
Women at these builds have furthered Habitat’s home-building mission by helping to construct more than 1,900 houses.
Never built anything before? Don’t worry! Many volunteers come to build with no construction skills at all and still make a difference. Other volunteers will use their skills, talents and contacts to help with fundraising, event planning, organizing volunteers, writing press releases and making phone calls. Women Build is much more than a simple home construction project. Women Build brings individuals and groups of women together to create something significant, and enjoy a sense of community and personal accomplishment.

Lowe's Women Build Clinics
As the underwriter of Habitat's Women Build® program since 2004, Lowe's has brought women together to support the nationwide initiative that challenges women to devote at least one day to help eliminate poverty housing. Lowe's how-to clinics have put hammers in the hands of thousands of women, teaching them construction skills and empowering them to be part of the solution by building homes with partner families. In April/May 2017, women will participate in this year's clinic at Lowe's in Eatontown. Register Today! April 29th 9am - 11am or May 4th 6pm - 8pm.
