Women Build Gathering
August 16, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
We are excited to announce the start of Women Build 2019, the only build where most of the fundraising and construction is completed by female individuals and teams.
Come learn about the only build that brings together the collective power of women to fundraise, manage, communicate, build social capital, and volunteer in a powerful way to impact our community. Women have all the skills and passion necessary to build Habitat for Humanity houses, addressing the problem of substandard housing in a concrete way so that families have safe, decent and affordable homes.

Women Build began in 1991 by a group of women in Charlotte, NC. It has grown into a national initiative of Habitat for Humanity and resulted in over 2,200 new homes. Through Habitat Forsyth, families earning a low-income gain access to a decent and affordable housing solution. Habitat volunteers get to build alongside the new homeowner, who is required to complete a minimum of 300 sweat equity hours before purchasing the house. Over 80% of our homeowners are single women making this build that much more special to us.
