Women Build

Women Build 2023 Information Coming Soon! Meanwhile, save the dates: build days will be May 3, 4 & 6, 2023! You choose which day you want to participate. See below for information about last year’s Women Build to get an idea about what to expect. 


Women 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 backgrounds 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 construction on 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.

 Women Build 2022

Join us as we celebrate Women Build 2022 on May 11th and 14th!

This national initiative invites women to devote at least one day to help build decent, affordable housing in their local communities. Come help us build and raise funds and awareness of the need for decent, affordable housing for hard-working families in Schenectady County.

  • No experience or tools are necessary! Volunteers should simply have a willingness to learn and an eagerness to participate in construction work. You will be assigned tasks the day of and given more specific information, including the address of the build, prior to the actual day.
  • Volunteers should be able to make a full day commitment (9:00 AM – 3:00 PM), and must be at least 16 years old (with parental consent) in order to participate.
  • Water & lunch will be provided, along with Women Build t-shirts!
  • All volunteers, no matter which day you participate, will be invited to a mixer on Saturday, May 14 – location TBA.
  • Spaces are limited, so reserve your spot today! Volunteer sign-up should be done online by clicking HERE.
  • Please note that the online sign-up form is for individuals only. Companies or groups should contact Kerrie (companies) or Lauren (groups) to inquire. Due to the limited spaces, we may or may not be able to accommodate groups for this event. If we can not accommodate your group for Women Build, we would love to explore the opportunity to bring your group out for their very own build day! 
  • If you have any questions, please contact Lauren Moore via email  or by phone at 518.395.3412 ext. 109.
  • Volunteers must be registered in order to participate.

Come out and help us build strength, stability, and self-reliance through shelter!
