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.
2017 marks 16 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 build experience is necessary– really! Each builder raises funds to secure a volunteer spot for one day of the build. You may sign up to participate on any day you choose. Meet new people and make new friends!
All men and women are encouraged to join the S.H.E society. This giving society pledges to raise $1000 per year for 5 years to support Women Build. To join or for more information about the S.H.E Soeicty, call our office at 812-331-6022.
