Women Build

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 decent, healthy, and affordable homes.

2019 will mark 19 years of building new lives in partnership with Monroe County families.

The dates for Women Build 2019 are:  April 26 – May 11.

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 their skill level. 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 while giving back to the community!

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.
