National Women Build Week, held May 3-11, challenges women to devote at least one day to building simple, decent and affordable housing in their local communities. More than 52,000 women volunteers from all 50 states have participated in previous years.

Women Build is Habitat for Humanity’s program for women who want to learn construction skills and build homes and communities. This program brings together women from all walks of life to address the affordable housing issue facing so many in our community. No construction experience required.

To date, women volunteers have helped construct more than 2,200 Habitat houses nationwide. Locally, Habitat Tucson has built more than 13 Women Build houses. The 14th home was started on September 11, 2013 and will be dedicated June 21, 2014.
