Get Involved: Women Build Day – August 27
The countdown is on for our new full Women Build home. An announcement of the start date is coming soon; in the meantime, let’s keep connecting with Women Build Days!
On Saturday, August 27th, we invite you to join us for a female-focused volunteer opportunity. You’ll have the opportunity to network and have a little fun while also helping a local family find strength, stability, and self-reliance through affordable homeownership.
Any interested woman, age 16 or older. Newcomers are welcome!
Home Preservation is now a part of our Senior Repairs program! Home Preservation projects include minor exterior repairs and improvements to help revitalize the appearance of neighborhoods and strengthen connections within the community. Through the program, Beaches Habitat also helps older homeowners who struggle with exterior maintenance to reclaim their homes with pride and dignity.
Saturday, August 27, 2022
8:30 am to 12:30 pm
To provide privacy to the homeowner, the project address will be shared with registered volunteers via email. All projects will be in Atlantic Beach.
You get the chance to network, spend an active morning outside, and enjoy the sense of accomplishment that comes with helping another person. A local homeowner gets the help they need to improve their 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!
Your gift helps make Women Build possible
The suggested gift for Women Build participants is $25. A donation is not required to participate! Give what feels comfortable for you.
