Building Strong Women & Strong Communities

Kicking off on International Women’s Day, this four-day fundraising building event is a hands-on opportunity to truly dig into the building process, and partner alongside the hardworking individuals in our Homeownership Program. The only thing you need is a desire to help modest-income families on their homeownership journey — no experience necessary!

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

How it Works

STEP 1 – Register to become a fundraiser

The minimum fundraising requirement to come out to the job site is only $50 per person! You can create a team of fundraisers or have your own page. (There will be perks for those who fundraise more than the minimum!)

STEP 2 – Reserve your Women Build shift

After you register, you’ll get an email with a link to sign up for your shift through our Volunteer Hub. You’ll be able to select the day and time you want to come out. AVAILABLE SHIFTS CAN BE VIEWED ON THE REGISTRATION PAGE!


While the minimum is only $50, we encourage everyone to raise as much as possible! You’ll get your own personal fundraising page to share on social media and through email. Encourage your family, friends, and co-workers to donate to the cause! *TIP: EMAIL and personalization is still the most effective way to fundraise.

Why Women Build?

Together we can support Habitat for Humanity while bringing awareness to the inequities women face regarding 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, Black women earn about $.63, Latina women earn about $.58, and white women earn about $.83.
  • 57% of Habitat-Spokane families identify as BIPOC.
  • The median home resale price in Spokane County nearly doubled from $255,600 in 2019 to $467,500 in 2022.
  • 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 in pay.

      Habitat helps build 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 me in helping raise CRITICAL funds to further Habitat-Spokane’s mission and build a more equitable community!
