Not only that, Women Build is a movement of women empowering one another. We know that 80 percent of Habitat NYC homeowners are single-female heads of household. By raising funds and raising walls our Women Builders are giving homeowners a hand up, not a hand out, helping them, and in turn helping their children, achieve financial and housing stability.
Since 2015, Women Builders have raised more than $500,000 for affordable homeownership in our city. Women Builders engage their professional and personal networks to raise much needed funds, either as a team or as individuals. Along the way, they receive support from our professional fundraisers, ensuring that participants reach their $500 goal.
Women Builders also have the opportunity to get their hands dirty, coming together throughout the year to physically build safe, decent, affordable homes for hard-working New Yorkers. Women Builders can sign up as an individual builder or put together a group of friends, family, coworkers, etc. to build together.
Join us in May 2018 for Women Build’s Signature Event where you will be inspired by our distinguished panelists. Over lunch you will also learn about our Women Build movement as well as raise much-needed funds to help families build financial stability and self-reliance through affordable homeownership.
