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.

For the past 11 years, Women Build in Lee and Hendry Counties has partnered with 23 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 outside of Women Build are also female-headed households.

Every donation builds a foundation for a stronger future

Together we will raise $360,000 for 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.

  • Lead a Team: Gather your friends and colleagues to set a goal and fundraise. 
  • Pledge to become a “SUPER” Person: Join the force of Women and Men 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? 
  • Sponsorship: Engage your business in local, life changing impact through a Women Build Sponsorship. 
  • Individual donors: Every donation makes a difference, and no donation is too small.
