What is Women Build?

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. Participants learn new skills and help to improve lives and communities locally. Women Build brings together women from all walks of life to address the housing crisis facing millions of women and children worldwide. According to Habitat for Humanity International, an estimated 15,000 women participate annually across the US, and Women Build crews have built more than 2,300 Habitat homes.

Cedar Valley Habitat for Humanity’s 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 prior experience is 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 to learn new skills, build relationships, and build their community.
