Women Build Week

Lowes Women Build Lowell
Women Build Week May 12-19, 2018

Habitat for Humanity’s National Women Build Week is an annual week long event created by Habitat’s Women Build program in partnership with Lowe’s. The program 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.

National Women Build Week is held the week leading up to Mother’s Day with Lowe’s generously donating nearly $2 million dollars and volunteer support. Hosting the event during this week reinforces the message that every woman can make a difference through learning and using construction skills. More than 98,000 women from all 50 states have volunteered at the nine previous National Women Build Week events.

In addition to the financial and volunteer support, local Habitat organizations and Lowe’s offer how-to clinics to help

prepare volunteers for the build site.

How-To Workshops at Lowe’s Home Improvement

As the national corporate partner of Habitat for Humanity’s Women Build program, Lowe’s Home Improvement offers training workshops for women. For those who may not have any experience in construction, these training’s equip women to feel more comfortable volunteering on the local Habitat construction sites.

To date, over 2,000 homes have been constructed by women crews in the U.S. and 30 foreign countries. Women Build empowers women to participate in Habitat for Humanity’s work by teaching new skills in a non-competitive, inclusive environment of cooperation, partnership and fun. Habitat construction staff provides on-site leadership to all of our volunteer groups.
