THE STORY:

Women Build is a Habitat for Humanity International program that encourages women to make a difference by building homes and communities. The program seeks to encourage women volunteers to further the home-building mission of Habitat for Humanity. Since Women Build's official creation in 1998, Women Build volunteers have constructed more than 1,600 homes around the world. Women Build is not about excluding men it’s about including women. Women Build projects provide a comfortable atmosphere for women to acquire construction skills they might not otherwise have the opportunity to learn. Women build provides an opportunity for networking while empowering and raising community spirit.

Locally, Habitat for Humanity - La Crosse Area Women Build program began in 2009 with a Women Build day. In 2010, the Women Build program grew to a week. With so much interest, in 2011 Women Build grew to an entire house build. Since then, women groups, students, mothers, and grandmothers have joined the efforts to swing hammers and raise roofs, and actively work to eliminate poverty housing in the Coulee Region.
