Habitat's Women Build participants come together from all walks of life to build stronger, safer communities. 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.
What is the Women Build program?
Women Build is a Habitat for Humanity International program that encourages women to make a difference by building homes and communities. The program seeks to encourage women volunteers to further the home-building mission of Habitat for Humanity. Since Women Builds official creation in 1991, Women Build volunteers have constructed more than 2,225 homes around the world. 2022 marks the 6th year we have participated in a Women Build Event. We started out our first year with 15 participants. Since then, we've had as many as 65+ participants! Every year we are more impressed with the growth of the participants and the dedication they show.
How can I get involved with the Women Build program?
This years Women Build will take place June 4th from 8am-1pm at the build site located at 654 Spruce Street in Aurora. The proceeds from the event will go towards the building of this home for the Strohmenger Family. Click here to meet Jenna and her 3 daughters and read how they found their way to Fox Valley Habitat.
All Women Build participants need to be 18 or older and are asked to raise *$250 to cover the cost of the materials that will be used for the event. (It's easy to achieve and we'll show you how!) The best part is feeling the excitement and inspiration from so many amazing women and the satisfaction of knowing that you were a vital part of helping build a home for a deserving family.
