Homes #56 & #57 - Niagara Falls, Women Build (2017)

Picof Families  S M Lweb Place

Habitat Niagara's Women Build will see more than 300 women from across our region come together to build a two-unit, semi-detached home for two families in Niagara Falls from August to December.

Habitat Niagara’s Women Build promotes the involvement of women in the construction of Habitat homes by hosting build projects with the majority of the planning and execution undertaken by women. Women Build is not about excluding men but it is all about including women!

These two houses will become homes for two local families, one with five children living in overcrowded, unsafe conditions, while the second will be an accessible home for a family with four children, one of whom requires a wheelchair.

Below is the Women Build Day schedule for our Niagara Falls homes. Each participant is asked to help fund the build through fundraising to have your exclusive day on the build site helping to build these homes!
