DuPage Habitat's 2019 Women Build Week will take place in Hanover Park from May 4-11.

In the U.S., nearly 19 million households spend half or more of their income on a place to live. That means 1 in 6 families have to make the difficult decision between securing housing and paying for food, health care, childcare, education and reliable transportation.

We believe every child, person and family deserves a safe and stable home, and during Women Build Week, we are calling on women to raise a hammer and share our message to spotlight this important issue. DuPage Habitat seeks to empower women and provide them with opportunities to use their construction skills. Together, we will create safe, stable homes in our community.

Here's how you can get involved in our 2019 Women Build Week:

Register your team for your preferred build day between May 4-11. Be sure to register ASAP, spots are limited (May 10 has reach MAX. capacity)!

Once you've registered and chosen your day be sure to take the time to personalize your team page and/or your participant page. This will allow you to show others why you are passionate about the Habitat mission. And it's what people will see when you start sharing your fundraising page.

Team recruitment is easy if you think about your network of friends, family, co-workers, etc. Invite everyone you know to join the team. Use the resources you have! Personal asks, social media recruitment, targeted email outreach, etc. Make sure your teammates are ready to fundraise!  

Help us reach our goal of fundraising $100,000 to help families in need of a decent place to build long-term financial security. By linking your personal fundraising page to your Facebook account you'll find it easier than ever to fundraise your minimum of $250. Check out these helpful fundraising tips and this list of creative fundraising ideas to get you started. Before you know it, you'll be on your way to earning some prizes for your hard work!

No experience is necessary to join our friendly and collaborative build site! You'll be working under the supervision and direction of construction professionals and alongside volunteer leaders and future Habitat homeowners.

We look forward to seeing you on our build site this May for Women Build!
