Women Build’s 18th year in Monroe County!
April 27 – May 12, 2018
Visit the official site of Women Build 2018 HERE to sign up to build or support one of our Women Builders!
Habitat for Humanity’s Women Build program promotes the involvement of women in the construction of Habitat houses. Women Build works with affiliates to nurture, recruit and train women to build and maintain simple, decent, healthy and affordable homes.
2018 marks 18 years of building new lives for Monroe County families.
All-women volunteer teams come together to swing hammers and raise roofs, and actively work to eliminate poverty housing in Monroe County, Indiana. It takes 325 volunteer builders, about 1600 volunteer hours, and $70,000 for land and materials to complete each home. Women Build is a safe haven for women to practice and excel, no matter what their skill levels. Each builder raises funds to secure a volunteer spot for one day of the build. No experience necessary – REALLY! – and you may sign up to participate on any day you choose. Meet new people and make new friends!
The Sisterhood for Habitat Empowerment Society, or S.H.E. Society, was created to honor and challenge Women Builders who commit to raise at least $1,000 per year for 5 years. Members of S.H.E. Society will be recognized throughout the year for their efforts to support future Women Build house sponsorships and homeowners. To join, or for more information, please call our office at (812) 311-4069.
**You can be a member of S.H.E. whether you choose to build each year or not!
