Women Build


There has been an overwhelming response to this year's event, and we are at capacity for our build site on all days of Women Build.  That's right - 250 of you have signed up to swing your hammers and make a difference for families in need.  Thank you for your support - we are looking forward to building with you! 

If you missed your chance to participate this year, and would like to be notified when it's time to register for the 2015 event, click here to send us your contact information.


Swinging hammers for a great cause mixed with a little pampering makes Women Build a one-of-a-kind experience!

Construction Activities from 9:00am—3:30pm Each Day

Contribute your time, talent and treasure for one day during Women Build Week to build Habitat for Humanity homes in Imperial Beach. To make the Women Build home construction possible, each participant is asked to raise a minimum of $150 in support of their build day.  Your generous donation will help fund Habitat homes throughout San Diego County. We'll make it easy, and we'll show you how!  

Build as an individual!  Enlist the financial support of family, friends and co-workers to raise funds, build a Habitat home, and network with new friends!

Form a team!  Gather your friends, co-workers, and family to raise funds and build a Habitat home!

Become a Women Build Corporate Sponsor!  Show that you care about empowering women in construction, and receive great benefits!  Sponsorships start at $2,500.

 Teams will compete for the coveted Diamond Hammer trophy, and the individual who raises the most money will receive a special prize!  All participants will receive a Women Build 2014 t-shirt, catered lunch, a gift bag full of goodies and more!
