Women Build 2023

What is Women Build?
Women from your area join together starting April 1st-June 30th to build a home for lower income hardworking families in the community. 50 Teams of 10 women work together to raise funds towards our $300,000 fundraising goal. Monies raised will support affordable housing for lower income families in Maryland’s Montgomery and Prince George’s Counties.

While Women Build is focused on the inclusion of women in the work of building homes, the initiative does not exclude volunteers of any gender or gender identity, nor does it promote discrimination of any kind. Local organizations are encouraged to recruit a diverse volunteer workforce and in your virtual engagements.

Women Build History
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.
