Women Build


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

Substandard housing is a severe threat to children’s health, growth and potential.

San Diego Habitat for Humanity creates affordable homeownership opportunities for qualified low income families.

YOU are a strong woman, with the capability and determination necessary to make a difference in the lives of San Diego children forever!

Construction Activities from 8:00am—3:30pm Each Day

Women Build participants must be 16 years of age to volunteer on work site. 

Contribute your time, talent and treasure for one day during Women Build Week to build Habitat for Humanity homes in Escondido. To make the Women Build home construction possible, each participant is asked to raise a minimum of $200 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 $5,000.  Please contact Shandy Arwood at shandya@sdhfh.org for information about sponsorship levels and benefits.

Don't want to fundraise?  Make your $200 donation and secure your Women Build spot!  Remember, if you donate or raise more than $200, there are great giveaways, courtesy of The Original Pink Box


 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 2015 t-shirt, stylish pink safety glasses, catered lunch, a gift bag full of goodies and more!
