What is Women Build?

Women Build is a Habitat for Humanity International initiative that encourages women to make a difference in their community. The initiative seeks to empower women to help families build strength, stability, and independence. It also provides an opportunity to bring women from all walks of life together for hands-on learning, and to create a lasting impact in their community. Habitat for Humanity of Washington County is familiar with Women Build, many successful projects have been completed in years past. But, its been too long and we need your help to bring it back!

About the Project

The Women Build project site is located at 16 W. School Lane in Smithsburg, MD. The property was donated to Habitat in 2016. The home to be built on the property is a one-story ranch style home. Habitat’s homeowner services committee is working closely with a number of qualified potential homeowners. As the project moves forward, the committee will select one of the potential homeowners based on need and completed requirements

The goal to meet for Women Build is $100,000. The goal will be met through fundraising & in-kind contributions.
