Mission Statement

The mission of HFHI’s Women Build program is to enable U.S. and International affiliates to recruit, educate and nurture women to build – and advocate for – simple, decent and affordable houses in their communities. Habitat’s volunteer program for women who want to learn construction skills, and build homes and communities.

   No experience necessary

If you don’t have any construction skills, don’t worry! Many women come to Women Build sites with no construction skills at all and still make a great impact.Professionals will be on-site to provide instruction and guidance. Volunteer - Call 301-863-6227 to speak with our Volunteer Coordinator.

Since 1991, Women Build volunteers from all walks of life have come together to build stronger, safer communities.

Our Women Build events provide the opportunity for women to take a proactive step in serving their communities.

Women Build opportunities are available across the U.S., and any woman who wants to learn how to build and construct a home is invited to join us. No experience is necessary. Volunteers work under the guidance of construction professionals, and also alongside other volunteers and future Habitat homeowners. Whether you are learning new skills or simply adding a few to your tool belt, this is a rewarding experience for all involved, and improves the community that you share.

Women Build is also a terrific way to involve your friends and family of all ages in crucial work with a lasting impact. Women helping women sends a positive and powerful message. You can also come alone, and make new friends. The atmosphere is collaborative and friendly.
