Habitat for Humanity - New York City

Women Build is a movement of New York City women who combine their efforts, skills, networks and muscle to help bring awareness to the cause of affordable homeownership.

For the past two years, Women Build has brought together women to raise money and create change in our great city. Women Build 2017 recruited over 300 women to raise more than $350,000 towards providing homes for low- to moderate-income New York City families.

In May of 2017, all the hard work and fun events culminated in a five-day blitz build event held over two weekends, during which the women put up drywall – literally building the walls of future homes. They worked in partnership with the low- to moderate-income families who will eventually own them.

The previous year, more than 250 women from across the city joined forces to raise $320,000 and build affordable homes for hardworking New York City families. Women Build is an evolving and inspirational movement of women empowering women. Want to get involved? Sign up for email updates!
