Women Build


National Women Build Week

Habitat for Humanity’s National Women Build Week is an annual weeklong event created by Habitat’s Women Build program in partnership with Lowe’s. The program invites women to devote at least one day to help families build strength, stability and independence through housing. The week is meant to spotlight the homeownership challenges faced by women.

Habitat for Humanity and Lowe’s are calling on women nationwide to unite and build up their communities during the 11th annual National Women Build Week from May 5-13, 2018. 

Habitat for Humanity and Lowe’s are expected to engage and build up local communities with more than 18,000 women volunteers this year.

This year, Lowe’s donated nearly $2 million to Habitat for Humanity to support the 2018 National Women Build Week, which is set to take place in 300 communities nationwide. 

During this week, women are given the tools and resources to work together to build Habitat for Humanity homes, addressing the problem of substandard housing in a concrete and meaningful way. 

Habitat and Lowe’s encourage all women to volunteer—no construction skills or experience in Habitat builds necessary.

At Watauga County Habitat, 2018 Women Build Week will take place May 5th-12th.  The women of Mast General Store, High Country Professional Women's Builders, Keller-Williams and St. Luke's Episcopal Church of Boone will lead crews as we begin building a home for the Bradshaw Family.
