Women Build

Sign up for the Women Build Newsletter

Women Build is a home build led by women of Oakland County, for women in Oakland County!  It is an incredible project to be part of because 80-90% of the work is done by women!  We seek to educate and remind women from all walks of life of the power they possess. Women can come together to raise funds and build a new home.

We prove that great things can happen when women come together to do good in our community! Join our Women Build mailing list today to get all of the details by clicking in the right-hand corner of this page.  It is our goal to use women for all aspects of this build, including contractors, skilled trades, construction supplies and equipment, site supervisors, fundraising and volunteers. Please help us identify potential sponsors, women-owned businesses, and others who want to connect with Habitat Oakland County! No experience is needed!

We thank all of our awesome sponsors and our Steering Committee for your continued support! Without your support, none of this would be possible!

2016 Women Build

We are excited to announce that our 2016 Women Build is taking place in Oak Park! Our Steering Committee has grown to include 25 incredible women in our community who are working hard to raise the funds needed to turn our “Reno to Residence”  (that means a “reno”vation will become a residence for a deserving woman!)   Funds raised support all aspects of the build which include: acquisition of the property, purchase of construction supplies and equipment, home buyer services and support including various homeownership training classes and volunteer support — all in addition to our low overhead.

We enjoyed our annual Leon and Lulu fundraising event in June and are pleased to add a new culinary event hosted by Trevarrow Inc. (a Michigan wholesale distributor of upscale kitchen equipment) in Auburn Hills on Thursday, September 22 at 6 p.m. and other FUNraising events throughout the year!
