Women Build empowers women volunteers by teaching them how to build homes.
Nationally, more than 60% of Habitat for Humanity’s houses are built with women heads of household. Due to skills they learn while building their Habitat home, these women are better equipped to maintain their homes and, consequently, more confident in their ability to cope with day-to-day situations.
