Women Build

Logo HSC-WBWomen Build is a Habitat for Humanity program for women who want to learn construction skills, build homes and make a difference in their community. The program brings together women from all walks of life to address the housing crisis facing millions of women and children worldwide. Women Build empowers women to take action against poverty housing conditions.

Women Build volunteers have the opportunity to participate in training sessions to learn various building skills before coming to an actual Habitat build site. Trained volunteers and staff provide onsite instruction and supervision to all volunteers.

Since 2004, Schenectady Habitat’s Women Build program has built ten homes.
