Local women join together to build a home for a low-income, hardworking woman in the community and provide exterior repairs and clean up for local women in our community. In 2019, 15 teams of women joined together to raise roughly $58,000 to support renovation costs for the Women Build house and repairs for local women.
Join us in 2019
We’ll kick off our Women Build planning in the winter of 2019, and begin building in March 2020, with exterior project days in May 2020.
Join us as a sponsor, volunteer, committee member or donor! Gather a group of 12 of your friends, co-workers or family and reach $75/person and get a closed volunteer day during March – May!

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.
