Women Build

How to Help

What is Women Build?

It is a Habitat for Humanity program that challenges and teaches women volunteers how to construct decent, affordable housing.  Every year, tens of thousands of women participate in building Habitat homes across the globe.  This is a chance for women of all ages and from all walks of life to help eliminate unsafe, unaffordable housing. No special skills are needed.  Training is provided. Come as in individual or bring a group.  Work all day or only part of the day.

Why Women Build?

Women from all walks of life can and should be empowered to take action against poverty housing conditions.  Volunteers gain the confidence and skills needed to lay bricks, pound nails, raise walls - create hope, thus contributing to Habitat's mission.

We are excited to announce that Women Build will be starting again in 2022!

The Ladies Level Up campaign has raised $60,000 from local donors and organizations to build our first home financed through donations raised by women and built primarily by women for a local qualifying female-led household. 

The home will be located at our new Chestnut Park neighborhood located on Sylvan Street in Waynesville.
