Women Build is Habitat for Humanity’s program founded in 1991 for women who want to take concrete action in building strength, stability, and self-reliance through shelter, while in the process learning new skills and helping to improve lives and communities. Women Build brings together women from all walks of life to address the housing crisis facing millions of women and children worldwide. In 2015, an estimated 15,000 women participated across the US and Women Build crews have built more than 2,300 Habitat homes.
Cedar Valley Habitat for Humanity Women Build program provides an opportunity for women to take a proactive step toward providing decent, affordable shelter for everyone in Linn and Benton counties. No experience necessary. Women Build is dedicated to helping women gain the construction skills and experience they need to build a Habitat home. This is a great opportunity for women of all ages to learn new skills, build relationships, and build their community. Women Build is about empowering women, not about excluding men. There are several opportunities to get involved!
