What is Women Build?

Our Women Build events provide the opportunity for women to combat housing insecurity by helping to build affordable homes for working families in need of a hand up. Anyone who wants to learn how to build and construct a home is invited to join us, and no experience is necessary. Volunteers work under the guidance of construction professionals, alongside other volunteers, and future Habitat homeowners. Whether you are learning new skills or simply adding a few to your tool belt, this is a rewarding experience for all involved, and improves the community that we all share.


What’s required?

Most importantly, a willingness to learn and a desire to help! In addition, each team of 10 volunteers must raise a minimum of $1,000 to cover the cost of the day’s building materials, meals, and t-shirts for the group.  


When is it?

Our 2021 Women Build is scheduled for September 20th-24th. We’ll be hosting build days Monday-Friday at 1891 North Avenue in Burlington, and two extra build days on September 21st and 23rd at 24 Horseshoe Circle in Milton. The event is 8AM-3PM, and sorry — no half days are available.


How do we register?

To reserve a build day for your business team, community group or faith congregation, contact our Volunteer Coordinator by e-mailing volunteer@vermonthabitat.org or by calling 802-318-7533. Build dates are assigned on a first come, first served basis. Reach out ASAP to secure your preferred build date!
