Habitat for Humanity-Spokane Women Build events empower women to address the critical need for gender equity in affordable homeownership. By breaking down stereotypes, we will transform lives through safe, decent homes in Spokane County.

NEXT WOMEN BUILD DATES: MARCH 19 – 22, 2024

IN THE CITY OF SPOKANE!

Habitat-Spokane’s POPULAR annual fundraising build event is a hands-on opportunity to dig into the home-building process and partner with those working hard in our Homeownership Program. The only skill you need is a desire to help families on their homeownership journey — no experience necessary!

Habitat is excited to announce that we will be hosting you in the City of Spokane this year!

Gender equity isn’t limited to just women: ALL are welcome. Habitat is excited to meet you at the job site to make fundamental contributions to the women in our community as we build one another up and build affordable homes!

Why Women Build?

Join Habitat for Humanity to bring awareness to the inequities women face, particularly in housing:

  • 60% of Habitat-Spokane families are led by single mothers.
  • 29.5% of single-parent households led by women live below the poverty level in WA State.
  • For every dollar White men earn, Latina women earn about $.58, Black women earn about $.63, and White women earn about $.83.
  • 50% of Habitat-Spokane families identify as BIPOC.
  • The median home resale price in Spokane County nearly doubled from $255,600 in 2019 to $409,900 in 2023.
  • Nearly 80% of families approved for Habitat’s Homeownership Program are working 2 jobs just to make ends meet.

      It’s time to break down barriers and help women become homeowners regardless of the inequities they face!

      Habitat builds affordable homes for families and individuals to BUY. They take out a mortgage at an interest rate they can afford, pay an affordable monthly payment, and become homeOWNERS. Please join us to raise CRITICAL funds and build homes to further Habitat-Spokane’s mission and create a more equitable community! 

      Donate to Women Build in honor or in memory of a WONDERFUL WOMAN in your life who inspires you to support affordable homeownership in our community!
