What is Women Build?
Women Build is an annual event that recruits and empowers people of all different genders, ages, backgrounds, and industries to come together to build homes and make a powerful and visible impact on our local community through housing and neighborhood revitalization efforts.
During the week of May 17-21, 2022, volunteers will work together to build a new home for one of Kalamazoo Valley Habitat for Humanity’s female homeowner partners. Women Build is a truly unique and exciting opportunity for everyone in our community to come together, no matter what their skill level, and roll up their sleeves to promote positive, women-led impact.
Volunteers work under the guidance of Habitat’s construction professionals and future Habitat homeowners. Whether you are learning new skills or simply adding a few to your tool belt, this is a rewarding experience for everyone involved – and improves the community that we share.
Funds raised through Women Build sponsorships and donations will support Habitat’s work building new homes for low-income families in the greater Kalamazoo area, as well as rehabilitation and home preservation efforts for our community’s vulnerable low-income homeowners.
Because we focus on empowerment, your support stretches further. Our affordable homeownership program not only helps to change lives, but acts as a permanent solution – ending the cycle of poverty by building generational wealth, especially for people from historically marginalized groups.
