Women Build Week: May 4-11, 2019

Habitat for Humanity’s National Women Build Week is an annual week-long event created by Habitat’s Women Build program. This event raises funds to support WCHFH's mission to build homes, communities, and hope. The Women Build program has three goals:

1. Engage women with Habitat's mission of working in partnership with low income families to provide affordable housing.

2. Teach women construction skills.

3. Raise funds in support of Habitat for Humanity's homeownership program.

Help us raise our goal of $100,000!

Every Build. Every Team. Every Woman.

Join Will County Habitat for Humanity Women Build the week of May 4-11. To support the WCHFH construction days, we ask each participant to commit to fundraise $350.
