Women Build 2017

Thank you to all of our amazing volunteers and fundraisers! This year was our most successful Women Build event engaging over 160 women and raising over $60,000 to support our efforts to empower women and build strength, stability, and self-reliance through shelter. Thank you to everyone who made this event a tremendous success!

Since 1991, Women Build volunteers from all walks of life have come together to build stronger, safer communities. Our future homeowners are largely comprised of women and children who most often have been affected by poor living conditions. Our Women Build events provide the opportunity for women to take a proactive step in helping other women improve their living situations. Your involvement makes a huge difference helping our homeowners achieve a more stable and secure life.

As part of National Women Build Week, Habitat for Humanity MetroWest/Greater Worcester is holding our own Women Build event to help empower and serve our female community. During National Women Build Week, more than 17,000 women will come together across the U.S. to help families in need of affordable housing. Locally, we are expecting over 200 women to raise walls and build together. Will YOU help us build stronger, safer communities?

Important details about Women Build:

  • No experience necessary! We have staff and regular volunteers on site who will train and lead you in your build activities. We’ll provide all the tools you’ll need, but you are welcome to bring your own well marked tools if you’d like.
  • This is one of our largest fundraisers of the year. To participate in Women Build we ask that you help us engage in peer to peer fundraising, or sponsor a team. Our FirstGiving site is easy to use and allows you to quickly and conveniently share why you are involved in this event.
  • Men are welcome to join us! While the overall goal of Women Build is to achieve significant female participation, we certainly welcome everyone to build.
  • You will make a difference. No matter how you support Women Build, know that you are making a difference for women, your community, and the world.
Thank you to this year’s sponsors!
