The 2019 Women Build Project:

This year Women Build will be partnering with several local organizations to help them with their affordable housing needs. Organizations that provide valuable social housing resources to individuals in your community, with all the accompanying necessary services wrapped around them.

But these organizations are not builders – that’s where Habitat for Humanity and the Women Build Program – and you – come in!

Women Build partners in 2019 include the YES Shelter, Daughter Project Canada, A Place Called Home, The Mount, and more!

Will you join the empowered team of women who will help change the lives of so many in your community this year?
