Every woman can make an impact

Women Build is a national initiative to engage women in the effort to provide safe and decent homes for families in need of affordable housing. By recruiting, educating and inspiring women to build, they can transform lives in their communities. For the past 10 years, Women Build in Lee and Hendry Counties has partnered with 20 families to build strength and stability for 50 children and their parents through local fundraising and volunteer efforts.

Every donation builds a foundation for a stronger future

Together, we will raise $360,000 to transform raw materials into three new homes that will empower three Women Build families for generations.

  • Lead a Team: Gather your friends and colleagues to set a goal, fundraise, and then volunteer. Take Girls’ Night to the next level!
  • Become a Superwoman: Join the force of women who are the foundation of Women Build. With this 5 year commitment, you’ll earn so much more than a cape. Are you ready to unleash your inner superhero?
  • Individual donors: Every donation makes a difference and no donation is too small.
  • Sponsorship: Women Build sponsorship opportunities are an easy way to engage your business in local, life changing impact.

Everyone can make a difference

All women (and men) are invited to empower change by building. There is a job for every skill level from painting and mulching to fundraising and advocating.

  • Volunteer at the jobsite
  • Gather friends to form a team
  • Spread the word
