The Women Build Mission:

  • Nurture, recruit, and train women to build simple, decent, and affordable houses.
  • Empower women from all walks of life to address the local affordable housing needs.
  • Help eliminate substandard and inadequate housing in Brevard County.

In Brevard County:

  • 80% of new volunteers had no previous construction experience
  • Women Task leaders supervise and train teams.
  • Volunteers keep coming back… and bringing their friends!
  • Lots of tears of happiness at the house dedication event!

The Women Build program has a rich history with Habitat for Humanity of Brevard County. The first build was in 1993 and 6 have been completed with the last one in 2017.

Habitat for Humanity’s National Women Build Week is an annual event that highlights the homeownership challenges faced by women and children. The event encourages women to devote at least one day to the effort. A decent place to live can remove barriers to opportunity, success and health that might have been a part of a family's life for years, if not generations.
