Women Build 2017
Where? The 2017 Women Build home is located in the Crosstowne community, between Rock Quarry Road and Old Garner Road in Southeast Raleigh.
When? Volunteers will begin building in September 2017. Build Days are Thursday, Friday, and Saturday for a two-month build cycle.
How? We need corporate sponsored teams, grassroots teams, and She Nailed It! Build Day volunteers to meet our goal of raising $100,000 to fund the cost of land and construction materials.
She Nailed It! will be held on Saturday, October 28. We’re empowering women to “get out of their comfort zone” and join 75 women on the construction site. To register, click here.

Why Women Build?
Women Build is not about excluding men; it’s about including women and serving more families. Habitat for Humanity of Wake County’s Women Build program builds homes with families in need of safe, affordable housing. These homes are funded and constructed primarily by women, providing a female-friendly work site that empowers women to take leadership roles and learn new skills, while building a home with a hard-working family
Women Build is supported by diverse groups of women — professionals, students, congregations, management teams, community leaders, book clubs, garden clubs, friends, sororities and neighbors — who join together to fund the entire build project. Teams are created through corporate sponsorships and grass roots fundraising. These teams provide the volunteers to build the homes and the funding to purchase the materials and supplies for the homes.
