Habitat for Humanity GTA calls on women of the city to combat unsafe and unaffordable housing in our community!
Women Build is part of a global movement that brings women together in a shared mission to help families in need of a decent place to call home. By bringing women together to swing hammers and fundraise, Women Build promotes empowerment, solidarity, learning, and pride in our city.
Approximately 30% of Habitat for Humanity GTA homeowners are single mother families. Women Build empowers women to take action by building, investing, and advocating for safe and decent housing for all, including women and children. Since 2009, our Women Build events have rallied over 5,000 women to raise more than $4 million, and help build 85 homes.
