Fox Valley Habitat Fall Women Build
October 8, 2021 8am-11am OR 12pm-3pm
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. 2021 will mark the 5th 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?
The Fall Women Build will be October 8th with 2 groups of 10 from either 8:00am-11:00am OR 12:00pm-3:00pm. The location will be determined closer to the build date. Registration will be open until September 25, 2021.
