Women have been called “the largest untapped reservoir of talent in the world,” and here at Habitat Tucson we know that when women come together, our ability to effect change in the community is incredible.
Women Build brings community members together from all walks of life to build stronger, safer, and more equitable housing. This coming year Habitat will be dedicating our 21st Women Build house!
According to Legal Momentum, women in the United States are 35 percent more likely to live in poverty than men, with single mothers facing the highest risk. Women are also consistently underpaid as employees, and occupy 60 percent of the nation’s lowest-paid jobs.
At Habitat Tucson, women and children make up the majority of those living in our neighborhoods, and we know what a difference equitable housing makes.

to empower women and fight for equitable opportunity
We believe equality for all women, a strong sense of self and confidence, and empowering women to achieve economic independence are vitally important issues.
Let’s celebrate the lives of extraordinary, ordinary women!
Let’s build one another up as we build up our community, home by home.
