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 27 May 12, 2018. 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!
