Women Build is Habitat’s volunteer program for women who want to learn construction skills and build homes and communities.
Women Build brings together women from all walks of life to address the housing crisis facing millions of women and children worldwide. Women Build events have helped to construct more than 1,800 houses.
No experience necessary
If you don’t have any construction skills, don’t worry! Many women come to Women Build sites with no construction skills at all and still make a great impact. Training is provided.
You can get involved with Women Build and never enter a construction site. Huntington WV Area Habitat for Humanity can use your help with training or support.
