Habitat for Humanity Heartland Ontario’s Women Build program has built a home for a single mother on Forbes Street with the help of 400 Women!
Local Habitats across Canada participate in Habitat for Humanity’s Women Build as a way to bring women together in a shared mission to help families in need of a decent and affordable place to call home.
Habitat’s Women Build empowers women to take action against the housing crisis. It involves women building, investing and advocating for a world where everyone has a decent place to live. By bringing women together, from all walks of life, we promote spirit, empowerment, solidarity, fun, learning and pride, all while working alongside future Habitat homeowners to build strength, stability and self-reliance through affordable homeownership. Habitat for Humanity’s Women Build Program promotes the involvement of women in the construction of Habitat homes by hosting building projects with the majority of the planning and execution undertaken by women volunteers. The Women Build Program is not about “excluding men” but it is all about “including women”!
Thank you to all our build partners!
