Event Information

Event Info:
Beginning in 2001, the women of Bloomington and Monroe County joined together to build a home in partnership with a family in need. During Women Build, homes are built in just 11 days, and all volunteers are women. Teams of friends, colleagues, and those who just want to make a difference join together to sponsor each day. Each builder commits to giving or raising a minimum of $250 by her build day to assist in sponsoring the home (purchasing land and building materials).
This year's Women Build will take place April 28 - May 13, 2017. Overall, it will take 11 build days, 325 volunteer builders, 3200 volunteer hours, and $170,000 to purchase land and materials for the two homes.
When Habitat for Humanity builds a home, the owners pay an affordable mortgage that funds another home until eventually we build a community. There is a limit to how many people can build a Habitat house, but there is no limit to how many people can contribute to Women Build. You can sponsor a volunteer builder by making a secure donation on-line through this website. The legacy of women building a brighter future for Monroe County families through Women Build is a remarkable one. Thank you for your support of this important event!
