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.
2019 Women Build: April – June

What is Women Build Week?
Women from your area join together for a multi-day effort to build a home for low-income hardworking families in the community. 36 teams of 10 women will work together to raise a minimum of $350 each towards our goal of $200,000. Monies raised will support renovations and new homes for low-income families in Maryland’s Montgomery and Prince George’s Counties.
