March - May 2019
15 teams, 180 Women, 1 Goal of $65,000
Local women join together to build a home for a low-income, hardworking woman in the community and provide exterior landscaping and repair work for local women in our community. 15 teams of 8-12 women will work together to raise $65,000 to support renovation costs for the Women Build house and repairs for local women. Individuals can participate on select days for $75/ person.
In 2018, our Women Build Teams and Corporate Sponsors collectively raised $40,875 and volunteered over 700 hours to support affordable housing in our community.

history & national impact
In 1991, a group of women in Charlotte, N.C., came together to build a stronger, safer community and completed the first women-built Habitat for Humanity house. With that event, the seeds for Habitat for Humanity’s Women Build program were planted. Habitat for Humanity of Huron Valley participated in its first women build program in 2009 and has been empowering women to address and help solve the housing crises in their own neighborhood. Since that time Women Build has helped to complete numerous homes for low-income families in Washtenaw County.
