Women Build

Sign up for the Women Build Newsletter

Women Build is a home build led by women of Oakland County who want – and are! – to make an impact on safe, affordable housing for people 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 to create change in their communities.

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 inspirational dedication none of this would be possible!

2016 Women Build

Our 2016 project in Oak Park was dedicated in early April. Cindy and her family were overwhelmed at the outpouring of support from the Women Build team, all the volunteers, and the community for their help on their new home!
