Women Build

Senator Debbie Regala, her daughter, and granddaughter work on a Women Build project at our Ainsworth Vista neighborhood.

Women Build empowers women volunteers by teaching them how to build homes, bringing together women from all walks of life to actively address the need for simple, decent, affordable housing in our community.

Nationally, more than 60% of Habitat for Humanity’s houses are built with women heads of household. Due to the training they receive as part of building their Habitat home, they are better equipped to maintain their homes and, consequently, are more confident in their ability to cope with day-to-day situations.
 

In 2015, Women Build will run every Friday and Saturday from May 9th to September 26. We'll be building an entire home at The Woods at Golden Given, from foundation to dedication. Volunteer with us every week or just a few times to make a difference in Pierce County. No experience necessary!
