As a chapter of Habitat for Humanity of Greater Charlottesville (Habitat), Women Build (WB) is dedicated to combating the local affordable housing crisis through sponsoring and building simple, decent, healthy and affordable homes in partnership with low-income families. Engaging women in the building process provides a unique opportunity for women to learn construction skills and build leadership and teamwork.
In partnership with families and volunteers in our community, Women Build has sponsored or co-sponsored nine homes since 2001, which has helped nine families realize their dream of homeownership.
WB is currently working on their 10th sponsorship at Belmont Cottages, which will be completed in the spring. WB welcomes you to join in these efforts.
