here's to strong women

Get Involved: Women Build Day – May 13, 2022

It’s time for another Women Build Day! Let’s swing some hammers alongside other women who want to build a better community.

Who:

Any interested woman, age 16 or older. Newcomers are welcome!

What:

Volunteer to spend a day building alongside our team on the construction site! We’re well on our way to fully framing a new two-story home. Much of the work will be elevated – on scaffolding and possibly on the roof. We will have “groundwork” available for those who aren’t comfortable working from heights. Expect a lot of hammering.

When:

Friday, May 13, 2022
8:00 am to 12:00 pm

Where:

105 Edgar Street, Atlantic Beach
**Parking is limited. Please carpool if possible.**

Why:

You get the chance to network, learn about construction and enjoy the sense of accomplishment that comes with helping another person. A future homeowner gets a little bit closer to owning their dream home. It’s a win, win!

What is Women Build?

Women Build is Habitat for Humanity's initiative to empower women to address the affordable housing crisis in our community. 

The fact is, construction is a largely male-dominated field. That's not a bad thing, unless it discourages women from participating equally! Women Build is designed to provide a site that is mostly female to help create a more welcoming environment for women who might hesitate to volunteer otherwise.

What is the point of a Women Build Day?

Beaches Habitat typically hosts a Women Build each fall, with a mostly female crew building a home (or two) from start to finish, slab to roof to landscaping.

Until we're ready to start construction on our next full Women Build, Beaches Habitat will host a monthly Women Build event. 

Our goal with the monthly events is to help keep our Women Build volunteers connected with Beaches Habitat and one another while continuing to build skills and relationships that will help prepare you for the future Women Build. And, hopefully, you'll have some fun too!
