Due to COVID, we will no longer enter homes. Donations must be in garage or driveway for scheduled pick-up.

Women Build

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 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 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.

Proudly Sponsored by:
Rivers Casino and Resort Schenectady Logo

Join us as we celebrate Women Build 2020 on March 4th, 7th, and 11th, sponsored by Rivers Casino and Resort in Schenectady!

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, raise funds and awareness of the need for decent, affordable housing for hard-working families in Schenectady County.

March 4th is closed as a private Women Build Day event for our wonderful sponsor Rivers Casino, but we are still looking for volunteers for the 7th and 11th!

Volunteers should be able to make a full day commitment (8:30 a.m. -2:30 p.m.), and must be at least 16 years old (with parental consent) in order to participate.

We will provide all safety equipment, tools and water onsite. Lunch will be provided, along with Women Build t-shirts (while supplies last)!

Volunteers of all skill levels are welcome. We will teach you everything you need to know to get the job done.

Spaces are limited, so reserve your spot today! Sign-up can be done on online, by email to lmoore@schenectadyhabitat.org, or by phone at 518-395-3412 ext. 109. Volunteers must be registered in order to participate.

Address of build and further details will be disclosed to participants by email closer to the date of the event.

If you have a corporate group who is interested in participating, please email lmoore@schenectadyhabitat.org.
