WOMEN BUILD

Habitat for Humanity’s Women Build challenges women to address the
problem of substandard housing and to be part of the solution. Women
are empowered to take the lead on the construction of a Habitat home
and help other women become homeowners. Women Build brings people
from all walks of life together and creates an environment in which women
feel comfortable learning new skills while building a LEED-certified home.
