Women Are Heroes Too

The Women Build isn’t just about constructing homes – it’s about building futures and breaking down barriers. Here’s why this initiative is so important:

  1. Supporting Affordable Housing: By volunteering their time and skills, women contribute to the construction of affordable homes for families in need, helping to address the housing crisis in our community.
  2. Creating Lasting Impact: When women come together to build, they create more than just houses – they create homes where families can thrive and build brighter futures.
  3. Empowering Women: The Women Build provides an opportunity for women to learn construction skills, gain confidence, and take on leadership roles in traditionally male-dominated fields.
  4. Fostering Community: The Women Build brings together women from diverse backgrounds and organizations, fostering a sense of community and solidarity as they work towards a common goal.
  5. Celebrating Women’s Contributions: The Women Build honors the countless contributions of women to Habitat for Humanity and the broader community, highlighting their invaluable role in creating positive change.

The Women Build was erected in Menomonie, WI in late 2023 with ongoing build groups contributing regularly. We need to continue to keep the momentum to ensure a timely completion.

Together, we’re not just building houses – we’re building a better future for everyone. Thank you to all the amazing women who are making Women Build possible!
