Over the past three years, Women Build sponsors, donors and volunteers in Southwest Florida have helped provide six homes to families in need. In 2014 we hope to provide two more! Teams are forming now to raise the funds to rehab the two homes. Are you ready to start your own fundraising team? Join a fundraising team? Donate to Women Build?

Our local efforts are part of an international movement in which more than 2,100 homes have been built or rehabbed by women crews in the United States, dozens more in countries around the world. The program began with a group of women in Charlotte, North Carolina and gained momentum with the support of women leaders from the grassroots level up to the White House. You can read about the rich history of Women Build here.
Women Build is about lots of us working together to help families in our community. Here’s what Women Build volunteer and middle school principal Jeananne Folaros has to say about how Habitat gives students the stability they need…in her own words.
