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.

This September, Women Build 2017 kicked off at WNYC's The Greene Space. Over the next several months, the Women Build campaign will gather momentum with a series of events aimed at recruiting, networking and fundraising – women coming together to raise money and create change in our great city. We are actively recruiting 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 will culminate in a five-day blitz build event held over two weekends, during which we will construct homes in partnership with the low- to moderate-income families who will eventually own them.

Last September, more than 250 women from across the city joined forces to raise $320,000 and build affordable homes for hardworking New York City families. This year, we’re at it again, and we’re going bigger than ever!
