A HANDS ON EXPERIENCE YOU WON'T FORGET!
The 2017 Women Build consists of teams of 6 women that will be building a semi-detached home for TWO families in Niagara Falls from August to December.
Through Women Build, volunteers work together, developing their handywoman skills and confidence, as they saw 2x4's, pound nails, install doorways and build hope.
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.
This is your chance to get involved and make a difference! You can form your own team in your workplace or with friends and family, or we can match you with a team.

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.
