Women Build 2017

Women Build 2017

About This Event

Habitat for Humanity’s National Women Build Week is an annual weeklong event created by Habitat’s Women Build program that invites women to devote at least one day to help families build strength, stability and independence through housing. The week is held the week leading up to Mother’s Day. More than 98,000 women from all 50 states have volunteered at the nine previous National Women Build Week events.

During the week of May 6-13, 2017, Women Build 2017 in Plainfield will seek to finish our current project called "Habitat: Barrier Free", which will serve a family in need of an affordable, accessible, barrier free home. The home is specially designed to meet the needs of a physical disability. On January 4th, 2016 Nikeisa Johnson and her family were chosen as our partner family for "Habitat:Barrier-Free" in Plainfield. 

We wish to thank our Cornerstone Sponsor - The Wright Properties Group - for contributing $5,000 and 20 volunteers to this year's campaign.

We invite you to join the movement - become a donor, volunteer, or a sponsor now!

Event to Support Habitat for Humanity - Gtr Plainfield & Middlesex County

Habitat for Humanity helps families build strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter.
Our vision is a world where everyone has a decent place to live.


Since 1991, Women Build volunteers from all walks of life have come together to build stronger, safer communities.

Our Women Build events provide the opportunity for women to take a proactive step in serving their communities.

Women Build opportunities are available for any woman who wants to learn how to build and construct a home. No experience is necessary. Volunteers work under the guidance of construction professionals, and also alongside other volunteers and the future Habitat homeowner, Nikeisa Johnson. Whether you are learning new skills or simply adding a few to your tool belt, this is a rewarding experience for all involved, and improves the community that you share.

Women Build is also a terrific way to involve your friends and family of all ages in crucial work with a lasting impact. Women helping women sends a positive and powerful message. You can also come alone, and make new friends. The atmosphere is collaborative and friendly.
