Every woman can make an impact

The mission of Women Build is 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, we can transform lives in our communities.

Empowering women. Empowering families. Empowering communities.


Every donation builds a foundation for a stronger future

Women Build in Lee and Hendry Counties has partnered with 27 female-headed families to build strength and stability for their children through local fundraising and volunteer efforts. In recent years, more than half of the families that have partnered with Habitat are also female-headed households.

Together we will raise $400,000 to build two new houses, transforming raw materials into homes that will empower our Women Build families for generations. Funding Women Build supports Habitat’s home-building efforts and the life-changing effects of homeownership for female-led households.
