Habitat for Humanity Monroe County 2017 Women Build


WEATHER UPDATES: Please check your email and the Women Build Facebook page for updates.

The Habitat for Humanity Women Build will be held in Monroe County from April 28 May 13, 2017. The event brings women from around the area together to fundraise and build homes for two deserving families in need of simple, decent, affordable housing. All women are welcome to join us as a builder for a day with no prior building experience necessary really! We will train you on site!

Each volunteer builder asks friends and family to contribute a donation to help her reach her fundraising goal (minimum of $250). Overall, it takes 11 days to build the house approximately 3200 volunteer hours.

The funds raised during Women Build sponsor the land, infrastructure, and materials needed for the homes, as well as the homeowner education training each future homeowner is required to complete. In addition to supporting the dream of homeownership for two families in Monroe County, the hundreds of supporters engaged with Women Build also sponsor a Habitat house in El Salvador, our sister affiliate.
