Women Build 2022, Chipola Habitat’s premiere event, is June 9th and 10th.
Women Build is a national initiative to provide safe and decent homes for families in need of affordable housing. By recruiting, educating and inspiring those in our community to fundraise and build, lives are transformed.
Our campaign spotlights the homeownership challenges faced by women and addresses these issues head on through the collective power of women across the community.
All women who want to learn how to build and construct a home are invited to join us. No experience is necessary. Volunteers work under the guidance of construction professionals, and alongside other volunteers and future Habitat homeowners. Whether you are learning new skills or simply adding a few to your tool belt, this is a rewarding experience for all involved, and improves the community that we share.
