Women Build

Women Build | May 8-12, 2023 Women Build 2022

Empowered Women, Empowers Families.

In 2023, we’re focusing on the first week of May to celebrate Women Build in Gloucester County. Women and children make up the majority of people populating Habitat neighborhoods as they are the most likely to be effected by poor living conditions. The Women Build is an opportunity for women-owned and women-led organizations to partner with Gloucester County Habitat to support affordable housing.

By recruiting, educating, and inspiring women, we can transform lives in Gloucester County. Any woman who wants to learn how to build and construct a home is invited to join us. This is an opportunity for you to get on the construction site and learn new skills! In addition to learning new skills, the event provides a unique opportunity for women to have a direct role in creating affordable housing solutions through construction, collaboration, and advocacy. Whether you’re already a handywoman or have never picked up a drill, Women Build is a platform where all women can assist in building a better Gloucester County. 

Volunteering during Women Build

Habitat homes are built with 80% volunteer labor. No construction experience is necessary. We provide you with all of  training necessary on site.
