 2017 Kickoff Luncheon

Luncheon graciously sponsored by:


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 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.

If you haven’t joined our Women Build Mailing List, please do that right now so you can receive updates on the awesome events we’re having and the progress of the work on the house.  If you would like to join our steering committee, have questions or would like more information, please contact Elizabeth Wyss at 248-338-1843 or ElizabethH@habitatoakland.org.
