Homes #56 & #57 - Niagara Falls, Women Build (2017)
5966 & 5972 Grey Avenue
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!
For more information please click here.
*Participants must be 16 years of age or older
To register for your Women Build day, please contact Dawn Marie Cavasin, 905-685-7395 x204 or email@example.com.
Once your spot is confirmed you will receive an email notification confirming your date and additional details, then you can begin your fundraising!
Every participant is asked help fund the Women Build build through fundraising:
- Individuals are asked to raise a minimum of $250 per Build Day
- Corporate teams are required to donate a minimum of $2,500 per Build Day
- Donations over $20 will receive a charitable tax receipt
NOTE: These funds help us to purchase the materials, services and land to build Habitat homes. If you are unable to fundraise your minimum amount you will be asked to donate the remainder of the amount on your build day to complete your fundraising goal.
