Habitat for Humanity’s National Women Build Week is a weeklong event created by Habitat’s Women Build program and invites women to devote at least one day to help families build strength, stability and independence through housing. The week is meant to spotlight the homeownership challenges faced by women.
Since 1991, Women Build volunteers from all walks of life have come together to build stronger, safer communities.
Though our neighborhoods are comprised largely of women and children, they are also the population’s most likely to be affected by poor living conditions. Our program provide the opportunity for women to take a proactive step in serving their communities.

“It’s really nice for Habitat for Humanity and Lowe’s as a company empower women,” said Portia. “I love that Lowe’s encourages us to get out to help Habitat build and help the community. It’s really good to give back!”
Lowe’s helped launch National Women Build Week in 2008. Each year, the company provides the support of Lowe’s Heroes volunteers and conducts how-to clinics at stores to teach volunteers construction skills. This year, Lowe’s contributed nearly $2 million to National Women Build Week. Since its partnership began in 2003, Lowe’s has committed more than $63 million to Habitat and helped nearly 6,500 families improve their living conditions.
