What is Women Build?

San Diego Habitat for Humanity's Women Build brings together women from all walks of life to address the housing crisis affecting many families in San Diego County. Providing a unique opportunity to swing hammers and fundraise, Women Build promotes empowerment, solidarity, learning, and pride in our community. It encourages women (and men!) to give back and help San Diego Habitat make a difference in the lives of local families. We hope you will get involved with Women Build TODAY!


Why should I participate in Women Build?

Women Build empowers event participants to take action toward the creation of simple, decent, and affordable housing in San Diego County. It promotes the involvement of women in the construction industry and provides a new and powerful experience.  It offers all of the elements of a regular Habitat Build experience with the added benefits of a fun and dynamic environment exclusively for your friends, family, co-workers, and teams!  Men are not excluded - all are welcome - and no experience is required!


What are the dates and details for Women Build?

Women Build participants can choose one of any of the following build days: May 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 9th, 10th, or 11th. Please click here to view the Women Build calendar.

You will join us on our construction site in Logan Heights to finish building the final phases of our 11 townhome community there. Get ready to work hard, learn new skills, and work alongside other passionate Women Builders and Habitat Homeowners. Chair massages will be available on site and lunch will be provided. We will end the day with dessert and a champagne toast! You will be asked to fundraise or donate a minimum of $300 per Women Builder, per day.
