Read about this  year’s Women Build families:  The Ault Family and the Paz Family!

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 17 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!

Beginning in 2001, the women of Bloomington and Monroe County joined together to build homes partnership with families in need. The Women Build homes are built in just over a week, and all volunteers are women. Teams of friends, colleagues, and those who just want to make a difference assemble to sponsor each day of the build. Each builder commits to giving or raising a minimum of $250 to assist in sponsoring the home (purchasing land and building materials). When Habitat for Humanity builds a home, the owners pay a mortgage that funds another home until eventually they build a community.
