In 1991, a group of women in Charlotte, N.C., came together to build stronger, safer community and completed the first women-built Habitat for Humanity house. With that event, the seeds for Habitat for Humanity’s Women Build program were planted. Habitat for Humanity Metro Maryland participated in its first women build program in 2010 and has been empowering women in the metro area to address and help solve the housing crises in their own neighborhood. Since that time Women Build has helped to complete numerous homes for low-income families in Montgomery and Prince George’s Counties.
2020 Women Build: April – June
