Every Woman Can Make An Impact

Women Build is a national initiative to provide safe and decent homes for families in need of affordable housing. By recruiting, educating and inspiring those in our community to fundraise and build, you can transform lives in our communities.

Join the Movement

Now more than ever, we are forced to consider the fundamental importance of home—of having safe, decent, and affordable shelter.

Women Build may look different this year (less social gatherings and delayed volunteer dates) but Women Build has always been about women taking on strong leadership roles to activate, strengthen, and unite our community.

We will get through this, and on the other side of this crisis are families who still need our support. In fact, the families who partner with us are often those who are particularly at risk as a result of their economic instability—when the cost of home is already out of reach, one missed paycheck can change everything.

The uncertainty so many of us feel today, many families have felt for a lifetime- if not generations.

Through the month of May, YOU are invited to gather friends and family, virtually, to raise funds to build, repair, and restore homes, communities, and hope!

Those who’ve reached a $1,000+ funds raised will be inducted into the Sisterhood of the Pink Hard Hats! And in August, team and volunteers will get to work transforming raw materials into homes (additional volunteer opportunities will be available based off of social distancing guidelines).

Everyone can make a difference

All women (and men) are invited to build lasting change in their community. There is a job for every skill level from fundraising and advocating to painting and mulching.

  • Gather friends to host a virtual fundraiser (Girls Night In!)
  • Donate and Sign Up for a Habitat virtual event (Yoga Classes, At-Home Scavenger Hunts, Happy Hours, or even a Virtual 5k!)
  • Advocate
  • Host a Facebook Fundraiser
  • Volunteer at the job site this Summer/Fall


Every donation makes a difference and no donation is too small. Create community connection and help build a future where everyone has a decent place to stay home.

Every donation builds a foundation for a stronger future

Here is how your fundraising efforts will impact Habitat Lake-Sumter and our partner families

  • To support current Habitat homeowners who are the most vulnerable to lost wages and employment insecurity being faced due to the Covid-19 pandemic
  • To underwrite the cost of a critical home repair, on the brink of losing homeowner’s insurance because of a failing roof.
  • To underwrite the cost of construction on a new home in August
