Habitat Wake’s Women Build program builds homes with families who need a safe, affordable place to call home. These homes are funded and constructed primarily by women. The Women Build program provides a female-friendly worksite that empowers women to take on leadership roles and learn new skills while building homes with hardworking families.
This year's women build homes will be built on Caddell Street in Wake Forest. Our team of corporate-sponsored teams, grassroots teams and She Nailed It! Build Day volunteers are working to meet our goal of raising $130,000 to help fund the cost of construction materials for two new homes.

Team Build Days
Sponsored teams will have first choice of build days. Build days are Thursday, Friday, or Saturday from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Lunch break is at 11:30. It is a great team building day!
A special Habitat Wake tradition is to hold a dedication ceremony to welcome the family into the newly constructed home. Volunteers, sponsors, neighbors and friends are invited for refreshments and to tour the completed homes.
