What is Women Build?
Women Build challenges and empowers women from all walks to life to help build affordable homes, hope, and opportunity for hardworking and deserving Hanover families. Through Women Build, Habitat is able to boost its volunteers, help women gain confidence and skills, and serve more families.
Women and children make up the majority of people populating Habitat neighborhoods, as they are the most likely to be affected by poor living conditions. Women Build events provide the opportunity for women to take a proactive step in serving their communities.
Mark your calendars!
Hanover Habitat for Humanity offers Women Build several times throughout the year. The next scheduled Women Build Weeks are as follows:
- March 5-7, 2020
International Womens Build is powered by Lowe's. This event is held during the week leading up to International Womens Day.

This global event will build or improve 540 homes while raising awareness of housing issues facing women and their families.
- September 10-12
