Women Build 2021: April 1st-October 30th

In 1991, a group of women in Charlotte, N.C., came together to build stronger, safer community and completed the first women-built Habitat for Humanity house. With that event, the seeds for Habitat for Humanity’s Women Build program were planted. Habitat for Humanity Metro Maryland participated in its first women build program in 2010 and has been empowering women in the metro area to address and help solve the housing crises in their own neighborhood. Since that time Women Build has helped to complete numerous homes for low-income families in Montgomery and Prince George’s Counties.
 

 

What is Women Build?
Women from your area join together for a multi-day effort to build a home for low-income hardworking families in the community. 40 teams of 10 women work together to raise a minimum of $350 each towards our goal of $200,000. Monies raised will support affordable housing for lower income families in Maryland’s Montgomery and Prince George’s Counties.

We are committed to the safety of our volunteers. Protocols and social distancing are required at our construction sites. Virtual opportunities are also available this year.
